Manufacturing / Engineering

Skillinvest can support your engineering workforce requirements whether your business manufactures, repairs or customises plant and equipment or is involved in construction.   We can offer a local service to local businesses and a statewide service to businesses whose activities span Victoria.

Apprenticeships and Traineeships

For three decades, our experienced Apprenticeship Consultants have been supporting engineering and related businesses to provide apprenticeships and traineeships under group training employment arrangements. Our extensive experience includes supporting:

  • Apprenticeships in engineering – fabrication trade and engineering – mechanical trade.
  • Traineeships in:
  • competitive systems and practice
  • management
  • frontline management.

For young people aspiring to trade apprenticeships, we actively encourage them to start training and skills development while at secondary school.  In our experience, students who transition successfully into full-time trade apprenticeships 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 provide a school-based apprenticeship. They’re a great pathway into full-time apprenticeships and well-established in secondary schools throughout Victoria.
