Facebook Youtube is a free service funded by the Department of Employment, Small Business and Training, and delivered by the Apprentice Employment Network, to support out-of-trade apprentices to re-enter their chosen career.

Information for apprentices and trainees

To be eligible for assistance from Tradeapprentices, apprentices will be required to meet the following criteria:

  • they must have a training contract that has been cancelled
  • and
  • the apprenticeship must be from a targeted skill shortage area.

Register now on the website.

Registering your details on the out-of-trade register does not guarantee employment.

Is your training up-to-date?

Apprentices and trainees whose training contract have been cancelled may be eligible for assistance to attend a training organisation to assist them to re-enter a training contract. The ATF-015 Training assistance for cancelled apprentices and trainees form provides further details.

Information for employers

Out-of-trade apprentices bring experience to the workplace, as they have generally completed some training in their qualification. If you are interested in employing an out-of-trade apprentice, search the website.
