Apprenticeships & Traineeships
Becoming an apprentice or trainee is a great way to combine professional training and employment while completing a nationally accredited course that will lead to a recognised qualification. You’ll get paid while you learn and your training is delivered on-the-job, in a classroom setting, at trade school or a combination of these.
School Based Apprenticeships
An Australian School-based Apprenticeships (ASBA) allows you to work as a paid part-time trainee or apprentice while completing your secondary education at school. This is a great option if you already know what job or profession you want to pursue and gives you a head start on achieving your career goals.
A pre-apprenticeship course is a stepping stone to get into the industry of your choice. It provides a blend of theory and hands on experience in a simulated workplace environment. A pre-apprenticeship is a great way to try a particular job or industry before committing to a full-time apprenticeship, plus you’ll learn lots of new skills.
Vocational Education and Training (known as VET in Schools) courses are completed as part of your secondary school studies. Designed to help you finish Year 12, VET courses provide practical learning and give you a credit towards a nationally recognised qualification. About one third of Aussie senior students are enrolled in a VET course!
