Australian Apprenticeships

Australian Apprenticeships includes both trainees and apprentices who are collectively referred to as Australian Apprentices.

All Australian Apprentices enter into a training contract. Under the training contract, the employer, apprentice and Registered Training Organisation (RTO) work out a training plan for the duration of the Australian Apprenticeship.

Employment may be one of the following:

  • full time
  • part time
  • school-based.

Students can start an Australian Apprenticeship while still at school, working one or two days per week, 48 days per year (School Based Australian Apprenticeships).
