What is an Apprenticeship or Traineeship?

  • An apprenticeship or traineeship is a career where you earn an income while also completing a vocational qualification
  • The universal term for both is ‘Australian Apprentice’
  • Employers can hire an Australian Apprentice in almost any industry and many emerging industries are expanding their workforce by taking on an Australian Apprentice
  • Apprenticeships are generally longer (3-4 years) and involve gaining a vocational qualification and an official trade certification
