You can begin while you’re still at school finishing Year 11 or 12. You don’t need a secondary school certificate or other qualification to start an apprenticeship although this is highly regarded by most employers. As an apprentice you will earn an income while you learn your trade. You can study a variety of qualification levels in most occupations including hairdressing, commercial cookery, automotive, building and horticulture.
You can combine time at work with training, which can be either full-time, part-time or school-based. When you finish your apprenticeship, you will have a nationally recognised qualification that can take you anywhere in Australia and to many overseas countries as well.
Step 1: Preparation and research.
Figure out what trade you are interested in, do research on job opportunities and write or update your resume.
Step 2: Job hunting.
Start applying for jobs through networking with people you know, online or via Job Services Australia providers.
Step 3: Sign up.
Once you’ve found an employer, you both must contact an AAC to organise signing a training apprenticeship contract. Select Kangan Institute as your preferred training provider to get started.
