What is an Apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships and traineeships offer the ability to ‘learn and earn’ from day one. They combine training and paid employment, leading to skills and qualifications that are recognised across Australia and by other employers in the industry. Apprenticeships and traineeships can be full-time, part-time or school-based and are available to anyone of working age.

Apprenticeships and traineeships 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.
