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.

Just wanted to send a quick thank you all for your help, support and guidance throughout my traineeship with Golden West. I have really enjoyed my time working with you guys and gained so much confidence and knowledge over the past 12 months. Although I am sad to leave Golden West, I am looking forward to my opportunity at TAFE and seeing where it takes me.
