About Golden West Apprenticeships

Golden West Apprenticeships understands that for our communities to thrive and grow, skills need to be developed and sourced locally.  As a community based, not-for-profit organisation, we are committed to developing these skills through apprenticeships and traineeships.

Golden West Apprenticeships employs apprentices and trainees across all trade industries across the Darling Downs, South and Central West regions of Queensland.  In partnership with our host employers, we are committed to connecting local apprentices and trainees with quality and meaningful employment.  We provide a dedicated and personal service to support the apprenticeship and traineeship process from commencement to completion. 

Over the past 30 years, Golden West has supported over 7,500 jobseekers into employment and completed over 3,500 Australian Apprentices.  During this time, we have built an extremely experienced and knowledgeable team.  We are your local experts in apprenticeships and traineeships.  

Improving regional employment outcomes is a key priority for Golden West Apprenticeships.  Our team is dedicated to meeting the vocational education and training needs of regional and rural Queensland.  We are helping to change lives, create careers and build sustainable communities.

Golden West did their job as required to a reasonable and effective standard. Consultants that I had during my time such as Sophie and Bec went beyond expectation.
