What Is An Apprenticeship Job?

Recently the distinction between an Australian Apprenticeship and Traineeship has been discontinued and both are now referred to as Australian Apprenticeships even though some stages are reluctant to let go of the differentiation.

Apprenticeships can be defined as;

    • Leading to a nationally recognised qualification,
    • Combine work with training,
    • Can be conducted on a part-time, full-time, or school-based basis,
    • Sometimes funded by the government,
    • Available to all working age’s,
    • Don’t require you to have entry qualifications,
    • Open to people whether leaving school, re-entering the workforce or wanting a career change

    Benefits of an Apprenticeship Job Program


    For the Employer:

    1. Possibly government funding or incentives,
    2. Training benefits bring companies increased productivity, worker motivation, improved quality and service as well as staff retention,
    3. Savings on materials and capital costs,
    4. Tailored focussed training,
    5. Can recognise prior skills / qualifications and experience which reduces training costs.


    For the Apprentice

    1. Flexible training that can be on-the-job, off-the-job or a combination of both,
    2. Can be set up on a full-time, part-time or in a school-based basis,
    3. Get paid while you’re qualifying,
    4. Get a head start in your chosen career,
    5. It’s ‘Competency based’ training so you can finish faster so long as you reach the required skills level,
    6. A good pathway to transition from school to work,
    7. Nationally recognised qualification and skills which can set you up for all future work ambitions,
    8. Can have your existing skills and prior experience recognised or course credits granted so you don’t have to cover “old ground”.

    Trade Apprenticeship Jobs


    No matter what industry you might be interested in, there is likely to be an Australian Apprenticeship Job to meet your needs.



    Australian School-based Apprenticeships Jobs


    To qualify for this type of apprenticeship job



    • Must be in year 10 or above
    • Completing their schooling while simultaneously doing an apprenticeship job program



    • Must identify commitment and competency of possible future employees,
    • Ensure availability of future skills for their business,
    • Give young people a chance to enter the workforce.



    Full-time Australian Apprenticeships Jobs

    The employer is responsible for all the apprentices’ on-the-job training. In consultation with the Australian Apprentice, the organisation must choose a training provider for the off-the-job training and determine a flexible training plan to suit the business needs.


    Part-time Australian Apprenticeships Jobs

    Many small to medium businesses may choose offer Australian Apprenticeship Jobs on a part-time basis.

    The Australian Apprenticeship Training Contract states that the Australian Apprentice must receive a guaranteed work pattern which means a minimum number of hours has to be set for both on and off-the-job training each week.

    These requirements may vary, as an example Queensland’s minimum time spent training at work and with the registered training organisation (RTO) is at least 15 hours / week. Contact your local Australian Apprenticeships Centre for advice.

    Group training organisations

    Group training organisations (GTOs) allow you to request Apprenticeships for Jobs as you need them. The GTO will act as the ‘employer’ and ‘contracts them out to different businesses as and when is appropriate. This is a more flexible way to run apprenticeship jobs.


    Most trades training continues to be through traditional apprenticeships jobs. In 2005, traditional apprenticeship jobs accounted for more than four-fifths of those doing contracted training for a trade and seven-eighths of all those were in contracted training for a trade.

    Getting contracted training with an Apprenticeship Employer while still at school using the school-based apprenticeship is mostly popular for the lower level qualifications, as well as the Retail, Hospitality, Business services and Automotive industries. Statistics show that apart from Automotive trades, very few traditional apprenticeship jobs were commenced at school in 2005.

    MIGRATION TRENDS: Trades & Apprenticeships Jobs
    Immigration used to be a key source for skilled trades workers with nearly 47% of new tradespeople being migrants. The supply of tradespeople from immigration declined rapidly from the late 1960s, with increased apprenticeship job intakes compensating for the decline in immigration.

    History of Trade Migration Today

    In 1984–85, immigration accounted for only 5% of new tradespeople.

    In 2004–05 the gain of tradespeople from migration was just over 6,000.


    That same period 28,900 people completed their trade apprenticeship job qualification, thereby making the gain through immigration a whopping 17% of new tradespeople.

    Most skilled immigration (about 40,000) to Australia is of people with non-trade occupations. Immigration of tradespeople may increase in the future because a wider range of trade occupations has been included in the Migration Occupations in Demand list in recent years. This list assists in prioritising applicants to the skilled migration program. In September 2006, 41 trade occupations were listed.
