Apprenticeships & Traineeships - Earn while you learn

Learning a new skill or trade is exciting for most students. However, if you are looking to boost your chances of employment, there's nothing better than getting real on-the-job experience in your chosen industry. We can help with that, even while you're studying.

Apprenticeships & Traineeships

An apprentice or a trainee is someone who is in a full-time employment-based training program, something we're proud to help facilitate at Central Regional TAFE. 

An apprenticeship usually goes for 3 to 4 years, and combines workplace experience, on the job learning, and scheduled training. Your employer will provide you with employment and training during your apprenticeship, as well as the opportunity to learn real work skills in the industry. To complete your apprenticeship, your employer will also give you paid time off work to complete relevant training with us at Central Regional TAFE.

Trainees on the other hand are those who are participating in a full-time employment-based training program that lasts a minimum of 12 months or more. Employers in the traineeship program will provide you with employment, training, and appropriate supervision, as well as the chance to learn practical skills in the position. Just like an apprenticeship, you'll be given paid time off work to complete off-the-job training as is required.

To enrol in an apprenticeship or traineeship you need to have an employment contract. Your employer will register you with Australian Apprenticeship Support Network (ASSN) provider who will create a training plan for you and work with us throughout your studies.

For more information about Apprenticeships and Traineeships visit the Department of Training and Workforce Development's Apprenticeship Office. They manage the apprenticeship and traineeship system in Western Australia provide help to employers, apprentices and trainees through every stage of their course.

School Based Traineeships

For school leavers, or full-time secondary school students, a school-based traineeship is a great option that can help students begin their journey towards a rewarding career in any industry. School-based traineeships provide the chance for students to work towards fulfilling the requirements for an industry recognised qualification, which can then open the doors for future employment, or even further study into university. 

During their study, our students are assisted by staff who are specifically experienced and trained in traineeships and apprenticeships. Our staff work hard to ensure that trainees, apprentices, and their prospective employers are working together towards the students’ goals and development. This is just one of the many reasons why so many students choose to study at Central Regional TAFE.

Contact your school VET Coordinator to express interest doing a School Based Traineeship. They will direct you to the most up-to-date information and work with us in getting you started.
