Want to build your team?
Consider a school-based apprentice or trainee!


Across all industries, from small businesses to large companies, school-based apprentices and trainees are adding value to workplaces all over Australia.


What are Australian School-based Apprenticeships and Traineeships?

Depending on which state you live in, Australian School-based Apprentices and Trainees can be year 10, 11 or 12 students who wish to gain valuable workplace experience and a nationally accredited qualification while they complete secondary school.


What are the benefits of hiring a school-based apprentice or trainee?

School-based apprentices and trainees work part-time while they are still at school, which means less money spent on wages and more to invest in your business.

Get the latest know-how
As apprentices and trainees undertake formal Certificate-level training, they receive the most up-to-date skills and knowledge relevant to your industry and bring this back into your workplace.

Financial incentives
The Australian Government offers financial support to eligible employers that hire school-based apprentices and trainees. Your local MEGT consultant can help you determine if you are eligible.

Fill skills gaps
Get an edge over the competition by adapting your new apprentice or trainee’s development in areas where extra skills are required to meet your business needs.
