Traineeships

For three decades, our experienced Apprenticeship/Traineeship Consultants have been supporting agricultural businesses including family farms to provide on-farm traineeships in agriculture, under group training employment arrangements.

For young people aspiring to work in agriculture or those on family farms and making plans for the future, we actively encourage them to explore this field while at secondary school.  In our experience, students who transition successfully into full-time traineeships have usually started training while at school through VET in Schools or a structured work placement or school-based apprenticeship, or a combination of all three.

We can support your business, including family farms, to provide a school-based traineeship. They’re a great pathway into full-time traineeships and well-established in secondary schools throughout Victoria.
