Apprenticeships and traineeships combine training and employment.
You can learn on the job and earn money while studying a nationally recognised qualification. The duration is between three and four years.
A pre-apprenticeship gives you basic skills in your interest area and readies you for an apprenticeship. It can take up to six months and you do not need to be employed.
A school-based apprenticeship/traineeship allows Year 11 and 12 students to commence their apprenticeship or traineeship while at school.
It combines part-time employment, school study and vocational training. As well as gaining a vocational education qualification, you may also receive credit towards your Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) or Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL).

These programs are not available to international students.
