Apprenticeships and Traineeships


Traineeships and Apprenticeship Services: Your Future, Your Way

An apprenticeship or traineeship allows you to become qualified for a job while studying for a relevant certificate or diploma. You get paid to learn on the job and gain a qualification. This is a flexible way to work full-time, part-time, or even while you’re still at school.

With this type of work and learning opportunity, through an apprenticeship or traineeship, you and your employer are protected with a formal training contract. Both sides sign this document to outline things like your role, wages, and expectations. With this protection, if you ever think that your employer may be in breach of something, give us a call, and we’ll help investigate for you.

Undertaking an apprenticeship is time spent learning a skilled trade under a qualified tradesperson or professional. There are hundreds of professions – from hairdresser to mechanic, electrician to a chef, plumber to cabinet maker.

A traineeship is the time spent learning a job (or vocation) under a supervisor. You can do this in just about any workplace, for example, in a shop, a fast food outlet or office. These qualifications range from Certificate II up to Advanced Diploma.

For eligible apprentices or trainees, you can apply for a Trade Support Loan to assist you with your living expenses. Find out more.
