School-based traineeships and apprenticeships in Victoria

December 22, 2014

School-based apprenticeships and traineeships open up many opportunities for students still studying and looking at their future job options. A school-based traineeship or apprenticeship can lead to a full-time job, a trade career or further training opportunities through university or TAFE. At Victorian Group Training in Colac and Geelong, we have an experienced team to help if you’re looking to start a school-based traineeship or apprenticeship, or you’re an employer looking to grow your staff and business.

Some of the advantages of school-based apprenticeships and traineeships are:

Get ahead in your career 

By working while you’re studying you not only gain valuable experience, workplace skills, confidence and knowledge about a particular industry, your school-based apprenticeship or traineeships acts like a job interview that enables you to show your employer how you work. This can go a long way towards full-time employment once you finish school.

Hands-on learning

Traditional schooling methods are not for everyone and there are benefits in school-based apprenticeships or traineeships for students who prefer hands-on learning. Learning outside the classroom in a work setting can have enormous benefits for a student’s confidence and career prospects.

Nationally recognised qualifications

A school-based apprentice or trainee can participate in vocational training that contributes to a certificate that counts towards the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) or Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL). Some students complete a certificate while studying and some go on to complete their apprenticeship once they’re finished school.
