Apprenticeships and Traineeships for School Leavers

About to Leave School?

Consider an apprenticeship or traineeship - and earn while you learn!

An apprenticeship or traineeship is a great way to launch your career by gaining a qualification while learning on the job. While working (and earning money), you are gaining practical industry skills and completing a nationally-recognised qualification that can really take you places!

With over 500 different qualifications to choose from in all sorts of industries—including construction trades, business, creative arts, environment, animal care, community services, and many more—there’s bound to be a career path to suit you.

By the time you finish your apprenticeship (usually 3-4 years) or traineeship (usually 1-2 years), there are pathways to higher study (including university) and promotion. Perhaps you want to climb the ranks of the corporate world or dream of starting your own construction business. There are so many possibilities!
