Apprenticeships

Apprenticeships are a great way to enter the workforce or to change your career.

What is an Apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships provide practical, hands-on, accredited training while you work – you earn while you learn. You must be employed, either full time or part time, to start an apprenticeship. Training can be undertaken on-the-job, off-the-job, or a combination of both, depending on your employer’s needs.

How long will an Apprenticeship take?

The duration of an apprenticeship is between three and four years nominally. This may vary depending on your employer and your determination to complete all competencies and assessments required for the qualification.

Who can complete an Apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships are available to anyone of working age. You don’t need a secondary school certificate or other qualification to be able to do an Australian Apprenticeship.

You can do an Australian Apprenticeship if you’re a school leaver, re-entering the workforce or as an adult worker simply wishing to change careers or gain new skills. You can even begin your Australian Apprenticeship while you’re still at school finishing Years 11 and 12.

Earn while you learn.

Students receive payment as a full-time employee while being trained by qualified industry and teaching professionals.
