The term "Australian Apprenticeships" covers both apprenticeships and traineeships, which start when an employer creates a job and decides to use this way of employing and training staff.

An apprenticeship is the traditional way that people have learned the skills of a particular trade. As an apprentice you have a job with an employer and you undertake "off the job" training with an organisation such as TAFE. You will normally attend this training 1 day per week, or possibly as a block of 5 days every 5 weeks. This will tend to vary according to your job and where you live.

Apprenticeships normally take four years to complete. Like any employee, you are entitled to sick leave, holidays and other benefits.

A traineeship works in a very similar way to an apprenticeship, in that you have both on the job training with your employer and off the job training with an organisation such as TAFE or other training provider. They are available in a huge number of industry areas and normally last from 1 to 3 years. The Traineeship can take less time if you have had previous experience in that industry area or if you learn quickly and complete the required work in less time.

As an apprentice or trainee, you get:

    # a job

    # accredited training

    # ongoing advice and support

    # financial assistance

    # a nationally recognised qualification

It's even possible to start and apprenticeship or traineeship while you are still at school. For details on how this works, go here.
