Traineeship

A traineeship is the time spent learning a job (or vocation) under a supervisor. You can do a traineeship in just about any workplace, for example in a shop, a fast food outlet or office. Traineeship qualifications range from Certificate II up to Advanced Diploma.

You can start the process of becoming a trainee at any time:

  • if you’re at school
  • if you’re just out of school
  • if you’re already working
  • if you’re unemployed.

As a trainee, you and your employer will have a legal agreement called a training contract. This lasts until you have completed your training and both you and your employer agree you are competent. A training contract cannot be terminated without the mutual agreement of both you and your employer.

You’ll be supervised while learning on the job, and you will also attend off the job training with a training provider. In some cases, training may be completely undertaken in your workplace.

The state government may subsidise your off-the-job training, meaning you pay less towards course fees.

Apprenticeship

An apprenticeship is the time spent learning a skilled trade under a qualified tradesperson. There are hundreds of different trades – from hairdresser to mechanic, electrician to chef, plumber to cabinet maker.
You can start the process of becoming an apprentice at any time:

  • if you’re at school
  • if you’re just out of school
  • if you’re already working
  • if you’re unemployed.

As an apprentice, you and your employer will have a legal agreement called a training contract. This lasts until you have completed your training and both you and your employer agree you are competent. A training contract cannot be terminated without the mutual agreement of both you and your employer.
You’ll be supervised while learning on the job, and you will also attend off the job training with a training provider. In some cases, training may be completely undertaken in your workplace.
You’ll study towards a nationally recognised qualification and obtain a trade certificate when you finish.

Benefits of a Traineeship or Apprenticeship

Apprenticeships and traineeships are ways to become trained and qualified in a trade or particular type of job. They offer benefits, including:

  • the ability to work and earn money while studying for your qualification
  • a nationally recognised qualification on completion of training
  • a mix of off-job learning (in a classroom, online, or at your employer’s premises) and on-job learning (in the workplace)
  • real life experience in the workplace.

Apprenticeships and traineeships can be full-time, part-time or school-based (done while you’re at school).

 

Non-Apprenticeship

Non-apprenticeship is the time spent learning a skill/skillset from a trainer qualified in a specific field of study, mostly in a classroom based environment. Some skillsets require simulation/practical training in a work environment suitable for that specific field of study. There is also a requirement to complete on the job training in the form of a placement where the student works in a commercial environment for a specified period. Generally, the placements are unpaid work, however, any payments for work conducted during placement are at the discretion of the business providing the placement opportunity.
