Apprentices and trainees work towards completing a nationally recognised qualification while learning valuable skills at work under the guidance of a training organisation.

Apprentices are trained in a skilled trade, such as electrical, plumbing, cabinet-making and automotive. Once completed, apprentices become a qualified tradesperson. Trainees are trained in vocational areas, such as office administration, information technology and tourism. Upon successful completion, a trainee will receive a qualification in their chosen vocational area.
