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

They 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.

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.

To undertake an apprenticeship at Box Hill Institute there are a few steps you need to take. Please allow enough time to familiarise yourself with what’s required.

Est Time: May vary per course


You must meet the entry requirements to be eligible to gain entry into the course, such as:

  • Find an employer or a group training company that agrees to employ you.
  • Sign a Training Agreement with both the employer and an Australian Apprenticeship Centre
  • Under 17 students must provide a completed Transition From School Form to Australian Apprenticeship Support Network and to Box Hill Institute(BHI)
  • Permanent resident/ citizen of Australia.

Once we have received your Delta Registration, you will be contacted by administrative staff from a relevant teaching area to discuss your training and commencement details. These details will be confirmed in a follow up email.

Online Core Skills Diagnostic Test

The Admissions Team will email you instructions for the completion of an online Diagnostic Test. This must be completed prior to the commencement of your training. It can take more than 90 minutes to complete and we strongly suggest you allow yourself at least two (2) hours.

When you have completed the online test, you will be invited to attend an enrolment session on the day of or prior to the start of your training, please bring an original or certified copy of your birth certificate or passport, or Medicare card and photo ID, e.g. Driving License / Key Pass / Proof of Age).

Finally, you will be directed to the Enrolment Hub to complete Part B of the Pre Training Review Form. An Admissions Officer will check your paperwork and hand them to you so you can make a payment at Student Administration.

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.

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