About apprenticeships and traineeships
An apprenticeship or traineeship is full-time or part-time employment that combines work and structured training. They’re a great way to learn and develop skills that will help set you up with a job and career for life.
Traineeships usually last one to two years and include occupations such as business administration (admin, accounts, HR, local govt. etc), retail, hospitality and more.
Apprenticeships last three to four years and are generally offered in the traditional trade industries, such as building and construction, metals and engineering, electrotechnology to name just a few. Throughout the duration of the apprenticeship, training is undertaken at a TAFE or other approved training provider (RTO).
You can be sure our training programs are matched to industry needs and that the training suits your potential employer’s requirements.
As an apprentice or trainee you may be rotated through different host businesses during your period of contract which gives you a better opportunity achieve each of the competencies needed in your chosen field.
