Have you considered an Apprenticeship or Traineeship?
Apprenticeships and traineeships are jobs that combine structured training with real work. They enable people to ‘earn while they learn’ by undertaking a structured course of industry based training. On successful completion, apprentices and trainees receive nationally recognised certificates of competency.
To apply, simply complete the registration process online and apply the apprenticeship or traineeship you are interested in.
There is no difference between the Certificate levels of an apprenticeship or traineeship, however, generally an apprenticeship will take 3 to 4 years to complete while a traineeship can take between 1 to 3 years to complete.
There are over one hundred different apprenticeship and traineeship qualifications, from business administration through to engineering. Learn more about each of the different qualification by clicking on the industries below.
Western Truck Group has been using Golden West for several years. Our experience with Golden west and Nikki has been refreshingly different from many of my experiences hiring staff. Nikki is always responsive to any questions I have; she keeps me informed and she understands what our business is and what we are trying to achieve. I recommend Golden West and Nikki highly and would use their services again without hesitation.
