What are Apprenticeships and Traineeships?

Australian Apprenticeships encompass all apprenticeships and traineeships. They combine time at work with training and can be full-time, part-time or school-based.

Australian Apprenticeships* are the best way to combine training and employment and they can lead to a nationally recognised qualification. Australian Apprenticeships are available to anyone of working age and do not require any entry qualifications. You can be a school-leaver, re-entering the workforce or simply wishing to change careers.

No matter what industry you might be interested in, there is likely to be an Australian Apprenticeship to meet your needs

Australian Apprenticeships offer:

• A great way to get a head start in a chosen career.
• Paid work and structured training that can be on-the-job, off-the-job or a combination of both.
• ‘Competency based’ which means you can complete your training faster if you reach the required skills level.
• Existing skills and prior experience are recognised and course credit granted, potentially reducing formal training time. Available as full-time or part-time, also available part-time in many schools.
• Leads to nationally recognised qualifications and skills which provide the basis for further education and training over the course of your working life.
• A pathway from school to work.

Australian Apprenticeships are available in a variety of certificate levels in more than 500 occupations across Australia, in traditional trades, as well as a diverse range of emerging careers in most sectors of business and industry, including Automotive.
