Apprenticeships and Traineeships

Australian Apprenticeships are a great way to recruit staff and invest in the future success of your business.

Training allows you to multi-skill your workforce, improve productivity and expand workforce capability. Other benefits include:

  • Your employees obtain a nationally recognised qualification while they work in your business.
  • Your employees receive training that is tailored to meet your business requirements.
  • Eligible employers receive financial incentives which assist in meeting the cost of training. Contact your local Australian Apprenticeship Centre to get advice on which incentives apply to your business.

Apprentices may be full-time, part-time, mature aged, existing employees or school-based.

Training can be held where and when it suits your business, either on-the-job or off-the-job at one of our training facilities located across Tasmania. If your business operates nationally, contact us to discuss whether we can meet your training needs.
