Apprentice Information

So you want to become an Australian Apprentice?

Australian Apprenticeships are the best way to combine training and employment and they can lead to a nationally recognised qualification.

Australian Apprenticeships offer a range of benefits, they:

  • Are a great way to get a head start in a chosen career
  • Involve paid work and structured training that can be on-the-job, off-the-job or a combination of both
  • Represent ‘competency based’ training which means individuals can complete their training faster when they reach the required skills level
  • Enable existing skills and prior experience to be recognised and course credit granted, potentially reducing formal training time
  • Are available as full-time or part-time, including part-time in many schools
  • Lead to nationally recognised qualifications and skills which provide the basis for further education and training over the course of a person’s working life; and
  • Are an important pathway from school to work.
