Business Administration Traineeships

Where can an admin traineeship take you? The possibilities are endless.

In 2020, Joel Hartley commenced a Business Administration traineeship with HVTC in Rutherford, New South Wales. Not interested in studying at university, Joel opted for a traineeship instead because he wanted to earn money and gain real hands-on work experience while he studied. Fast forward two years, Joel is now undertaking his second traineeship - this time in the Marketing and Communications space and recently attended the prestigious Today's Skills Tomorrow's Leaders Program in Canberra. 

Georgie Stephenson has also used her Business Admin traineeship as a catapult for further training and employment opportunities. In 2013 Georgie commenced her traineeship with HVTC while hosted to Goulburn-Mulwaree Council for on-the-job training. Today, Georgie is still working with Council, but has moved into a people-focused role as the Human Resources Coordinator.

So what do Joel and Georgie's journeys tell us? Business Admin training provides you with a very important suite of foundational skills that will take you anywhere. But you're probably wondering, what exactly does a business admin trainee do? Well, lots of things and it depends on who you're working for, but generally the types of tasks you'll be doing might include:

  • mail, filing and data entry
  • greeting and handling customer enquiries via phone, email and face to face
  • using various computer software tools to assist with the business operations
  • ordering stationary and other office supplies
  • providing general administration and office support

How does a traineeship work?

A full-time traineeship is typically completed over 12 months and involves hands-on practical training in the workplace and off-the-job training through a Registered Training Organisation (RTO).
