Apprenticeships and Traineeships
An apprenticeship or traineeship is a structured employment based training program that allows you to have a job and be paid while you learn. In most instances practical experience at work is combined with complementary off-the-job training provided by Central Institute of Technology.
Apprenticeships lead to trade certification and nationally recognised qualifications.
Traineeships focus on entry level training in non-trade areas and lead to nationally-recognised qualifications. Some school based traineeships are available to year 11 and 12 students who combine part time work with secondary studies via an approved training schedule. Apprenticeships and Traineeships are not available as an option for International students.
Please Note: The process for actually getting into an apprenticeship/traineeship (which involves finding an employer) is very different to the application process for normal study.
Getting into this course
In order to gain entry into this course you must demonstrate basic maths and communication skills.
This conversion table explains the grades you need to have obtained at a high school level to meet this entry level requirement.
Entry into Apprenticeships & Traineeships
The process for gaining a traineeship or an apprenticeship is quite different to entry into a full time or part time course studied on campus. The first, and most important, requirement is for you to find an employer who will take you on. With this employer you will then set up a training contract which specifies your work, your training and the length of time you will be contracted for. Training will be a combination of "on the job" training and in class study. One of the best places to start looking for an apprenticeship or traineeship is the ApprentiCentre. They can be also be called on 13 19 54.
The Application Process
The process for applying for a course at Central depends on whether you are a local or international student and the way that you will be studying: full time, part time, as an apprentice or trainee.
Our future students area of the website includes a handy guide to help you through the process depending on what type of student you are, and how you are planning on studying.
