About Apprenticeships & Traineeships

Apprenticeships and Traineeships are jobs where you learn skills as you work, do formal study with a training provider and get paid a training wage.

Apprenticeships span across 3-4 years and lead to a trade based qualification.

Traineeships are usually shorter and lead to an industry recognised Certificate.


If you've always wanted to be a tradie, an apprenticeship is the best pathway for you.

We can help you by confirming that you have the aptitude and commitment that it will take to complete a trade.

We will also help you choose the right apprenticeship and win the job.
