Additional apprenticeship and traineeship information
Apprenticeships and traineeships combine training with working in a real job, for a real boss with a real wage.
Apprentices and trainees complete a qualification while learning skills at work and under the guidance of a training provider. Apprenticeships and traineeships can be full-time, part-time or school-based where some of the training is undertaken while the apprentice or trainee is at high school.
An apprentice or trainee:
is paid to do a job and learn new skills at the same time
has a variety of jobs and career paths, without having to go to university
receives a qualification which is recognised wherever they go in Australia.
Central Queensland Institute of TAFE offers nationally-recognised training to apprentices and trainees in a way and at a time that suits their workplace. Our trainers:
work with the apprentice/trainee and employer to design a training plan. Including:
what training needs to occur
how that training will be provided
when/where that training will take place and
support both to make it work
provide a Training Record Book and any essential training materials at no cost to the apprentice/trainee
visit workplaces to monitor training
organise any additional learning support required (eg. reading, maths skills)
provide advice on fees and charges, and travel and accommodation subsidies.
