Apprenticeships and traineeships

What is an Australian apprenticeship or traineeship? 

An Australian apprenticeship/traineeship a great way to combine training with working in a real job, for a real boss, earning a real wage. You can complete a qualification, learning skills both at work and under the guidance of a training provider.  North Regional TAFE works with you and your employer to develop a training plan, deliver training, provide support, assess your achievement of skills and issue your qualification upon successful completion.

The Basics

• Traineeships generally take between twelve months and two years
• Apprenticeships generally take three to four years
• They can be full-time, part-time or school based
• They each involve a training plan, which is a contract negotiated between yourself, your employer and NRT 
• Upon successful completion, you will receive a nationally recognised qualification
