What is an apprenticeship or traineeship?
An apprenticeship or traineeship enables employees to learn a trade or specific skills both on the job under the guidance of a qualified tradesperson or professional and in class. This leads to highly proficient workers with access to the latest industry trends and developments.
Apprenticeships are available for most trades – hairdresser, mechanic, electrician, chef, plumber and cabinet maker to name a few – while traineeships are available for a range of industries including technical production, HR, project management, early childhood education and more.
They can be full-time, part-time or school-based (initiated while still at school).
