is an Australian apprenticeship and traineeship?
apprenticeships are simply referred to as apprenticeships or traineeships
and offer opportunities for people to train, study and earn income at a variety
of qualification levels, in a huge range of occupations including the
traditional trades. An Australian apprenticeship combines structured
training (e.g. through TAFE or another Registered Training Organisation) with
practical on-the-job training with an employer. As an apprentice or
trainee, you enter a training contract with your employer. You are paid
for your work and, when you complete your training, you receive a nationally
Apprenticeships are required for
skilled trade areas such as electrical, plumbing, carpentry, cabinet-making,
automotive, hairdressing, etc. Traineeships are undertaken in vocational
areas such as office administration, information technology, tourism,
hospitality, beauty therapy, etc. Traineeships can take from one to three
years to complete, while apprenticeships can take up to four years to complete.
Apprenticeships and traineeships can
be full-time, part-time or school-based. A school-based apprenticeship or
traineeship allows you to start your training while you are still at
school. It will contribute credit towards your Queensland Certificate of
Education. You can find out about school-based apprenticeships and
traineeships on the Apprenticeships
There are over 500 jobs that offer
Australian apprenticeships in over 30
different industries. Read about the different types of apprenticeships
and traineeships that are available in Queensland on the Queensland
Training Information Service website.
To complete an apprenticeship or
traineeship, you are required to have an employer who you work with and who
teachers you ‘on-the-job’. You also complete a Vocational and Education
Training (VET) qualification (for an apprenticeship it is usually a Certificate
III). This qualification is usually gained at a TAFE college or at
another Registered Training Organisation (RTO). This is what ‘off-the-job’
training means. Sometimes the RTO comes to your place of work to
undertake the training. Find out more about apprenticeship training on
Apprenticeships Pathways website.

A "Gap Year" is where you take a
"year off" after your secondary schooling to do something else before
you undertake further education and training (or full time employment).
Normally, people travel, work part time or do
volunteer work, or a combination of these.
It is now a common practice to defer university for
a year and undertake these activities before commencing university the
following year. Students often use this time to work to gain "independent
status" before going to university, however, you should visit the
Centrelink website to check on the current guidelines for this.
Volunteering is a really common Gap Year activity. It is
a great opportunity to experience other cultures and develop a broad range of
skills - all while helping other people.
