Taking on apprentices and trainees can provide real benefits for your business. Your new apprentice or trainee can contribute significantly to your bottom line, with practical skills and knowledge acquired through their training. Taking on a new apprentice may also mean you are eligible for a range of government financial assistance. They can be full-time, part-time or school-based.

Apprenticeships are available in over 500 occupations in a broad range of industries, from traditional trades like cabinet maker, motor mechanic, electrician and plumber, to areas of innovation like electro-technology and aviation. They combine work with study for a qualification, certificate or diploma.

Australian Apprenticeships Centres provide a free service to employers to help them with the sign-up and administration of an Australian Apprenticeship. They are available in most locations around Australia.
