Australian Apprenticeships (often referred to as apprenticeships or traineeships) enable you to earn an income and gain industry experience while you train for a nationally recognised qualification.
Australian Apprenticeships are available in a wide range of occupations as well as in traditional trades and are available to anyone of working age.
You don’t need a secondary school certificate or other qualification to start an Australian Apprenticeship.
The Australian Apprenticeships website provides information for people looking to start an apprenticeship or traineeship, including contact details for Australian Apprenticeship Support Network providers across Australia. There is also information on:
- Australian Apprenticeships programmes
- Employer incentives
- Support and assistance for apprentices during their apprenticeships.
The Australian Apprenticeships Pathways website provides a broad range of information and resources including sample job and training descriptions, industry based job pathway charts and practice aptitude quizzes.
- Further information is available in the brochure An Australian Apprenticeship - Endless Career Possibilities.
- The Using the Australian Apprenticeships Pathways factsheet provides guidance on navigating the website.
