Apprenticeships and traineeships

Apprentices and trainees

Apprenticeships are offered in jobs that require a high level of skill. Upon completion of an apprenticeship, a person receives a certificate qualification and is considered to be qualified in their trade. This usually means they can work on their own and supervise staff.

Traineeships can be undertaken as a way to gain entry into a job and acquire skills. Upon completion, a person receives a certificate qualification as evidence of their skills.

There is also the option for students to undertake an apprenticeship or traineeship while at school. Employers looking to recruit a school-based apprentice or trainee should make contact with local high schools in their area.

TAFE Queensland helps thousands of businesses and students with their training needs, delivering a suite of apprentice and trainee services, pre-apprenticeship, post-trade training programs, as well as customised training solutions designed to suit individual business needs.
