What are Australian Apprenticeships?

Australian Apprenticeships are nationally recognised training programs that combine work and accredited training. ‘Australian Apprenticeships’ incorporates both apprenticeships and traineeships.

Who is eligible?

Anyone aged 16—64 can be an Australian Apprentice. Australian Apprenticeships involve working full-time, part-time or school based and receiving training both on and off the job. . An Australian Apprentice will usually undergo a combination of training and assessment at work and with a registered training organisation (such as MADEC), or undertake all their training in the workplace. Australian Apprenticeships operate on the basis of a formal agreement between the employer and the Apprentice/Trainee. A ‘Training Agreement’ outlines the obligation of the employer to provide training, specifies the qualification to be achieved by the Australian Apprentice and explains their obligations. Training Agreements are lodged with Victorian Higher Education and Skills Group (HESG) in the state of Victoria and Department of Further Education, Employment, Science and Technology (DFEEST) in South Australia.

Australian Apprenticeship Support Network

Apprenticeship Network providers are contracted by the Australian Government to provide free Australian Apprenticeships support services to apprentices and employers. Apprenticeship Network providers will provide advice and support services tailored to the needs of employers and apprentices throughout the apprenticeship lifecycle.
