ACT User Choice (Traineeships)

Australian Apprenticeships encompass all apprenticeships and traineeships. They combine time at work with training and can be full-time, part-time or school-based.

Australian Apprenticeships combine practical work with structured learning and lead to a nationally recognised qualification. They provide Australian Apprentices with the necessary job experience to pursue the career they want. Australian Apprenticeships are available in over 500 occupations in an increasing range of industries. Some Australian Apprenticeships can be started while still at school and form part of a student’s Year 12 Certificate. For more information on Australian School-based Apprenticeships (ASBAs) please visit the ASBA webpage.

Australian Apprenticeships are ‘competency based’ which means training can be completed as soon as the required skill level in the full qualification is reached.

Australian Apprenticeships include the ‘traditional trades’ such as automotive, hairdressing or plumbing, as well as newer industries such as information technology, child care and communications. The job prospects for qualified people are vast as the demand for skilled workers increases.

Australian Apprenticeships offer:

  • a great way to get a head start in your chosen career
  • paid work and structured training that can be on-the-job, off-the-job or a combination of both
  • ‘competency based’ training which means you can complete your course faster if you reach the required skill level
  • existing skills and prior experience are recognised and course credit granted, potentially reducing formal training time
  • full-time or part-time availability, also available part-time in many schools
  • a pathway to nationally recognised qualifications and skills which provide the basis for further education and training over the course of your working life
  • a pathway from school to work.
