Pre-apprenticeship in School (PAIS) programs

If you're in Year 11 or 12, the PAiS program involves attending school, completing Certificate II pre-apprenticeship training at North Metropolitan TAFE, and completing work placements with an employer.

Graduate Year 12 with your WACE, a pre-apprenticeship in your chosen field and be a step ahead of others looking for apprenticeships.

There is no doubt employers look favourably at the candidate who already has a proven track record of study, demonstrated the capacity to apply themselves to a formal TAFE course and can understand the practices and terminology associated with the trade in question.

Students who wish to apply for these courses can apply through our online application process.
