An apprenticeship or traineeship is a pathway to skilled employment and further training opportunities. They can be undertaken on a full or part-time basis and can be used as a stepping stone to a career in one of 500 occupations across a wide range of industries. To do an apprenticeship/traineeship you must have a job. Apprentices/trainees learn industry skills by combining paid work with training through a Registered Training Organisation (RTO). The training leads to a vocational qualification, ranging from a Certificate I to an Advanced Diploma level, and is recognised throughout Australia. Find out more: Also see:
