You can start training in Year 10 with a course to give you the skills you need to be ready for work. If you prefer, you can wait and do this course in Year 11 or Year 12.
Once you are ready, you can start an apprenticeship/traineeship either in Year 11 or Year 12. This is when you start to get paid for working on the job.
Your apprenticeship/traineeship can be part time or full time.
If you choose a part time traineeship, you may spend up to four days in school and one day in the workplace. You may also get some off the job training with a registered training provider such as a State Training Provider.
If you choose a part time apprenticeship, you may spend three days in school, one day with a training provider and one day in the workplace.
If you choose to become a full time apprentice/trainee, you would leave school to train but stay employed by a group training organisation.
