Apprentices and Trainees

Hiring an apprentice or trainee can prove a sound investment for your business. It can help you increase performance and ensures valuable skills and ‘tricks of the trade’ are passed on to the next generation of Australia’s workforce.

Why Employ an Apprentice or Trainee?

Taking on an apprentice or trainee is a cost-effective way of expanding your workforce and ensuring recruits develop the skills and knowledge required to become valuable members of your team.

You can benefit from the fresh perspective, enthusiasm and an extra pair of hands. Your new starter will benefit from your expertise as they grow and contribute to your business.

Workskil Australia can connect you with a suitable recruit and assist with the onboarding process, so you both hit the ground running and access the relevant financial incentives.

What's the Difference?

Both apprenticeships and traineeships combine education with paid on-the-job experience.

Apprentices work in the trades, for example, as carpenters, chefs and hairdressers. Apprenticeships are completed in one to four years, depending on the industry.

Trainees work and learn across industries including administration, childcare, healthcare and IT, and take one to two years to complete their traineeship.
