If you’re looking to kick start your career or try out some new skills, a pre-apprenticeship could be the beginning of an exciting trade career.
Our pre-apprenticeship courses take about six to nine months to complete and usually include a combination of traditional classroom learning and hands-on work experience at TAFE and out in the real world.
Why do a pre-apprenticeship?
A pre-apprenticeship will give you the opportunity to see if you’re the right fit for the trade you’re considering, and unlike an apprenticeship or a traineeship you don’t need to find someone to employ you first.
Completing a pre-apprenticeship shows future employers that you’re keen to learn and work, helping you to stand out from the competition. You’ll also graduate with a qualification (usually a Certificate II), which may give you credits towards your apprenticeship or traineeship in the future, shortening the length of your training.
