Apprenticeships and Traineeships are arrangements that combine formally recognised training with a registered training organisation (such as a TAFE or trade school), with practical work experience and on- the-job training.
What’s the difference between an Apprenticeship and a Traineeship?
Apprenticeships allow the individual to study for a trade qualification, for example as a carpenter, chef or hairdresser. It will take approximately 3-4 years to complete an apprenticeship.
Traineeships allow a person to study for a certificate level qualification to work in a particular industry or occupation; for example, in office work, childcare or information technology. It will take approximately 1-2 years to complete a traineeship.
Apprenticeships and traineeships can be done on a full-time or part-time basis by anyone who is old enough to work. The age a person can start work depends on the state or territory that they work in.
High school students can also do a school-based apprenticeship or traineeship, which combines work, training and secondary education.
