A traineeship is the time spent learning a job (or vocation) under a supervisor. You can do a traineeship in just about any workplace, for example in a shop, a fast food outlet or office.
Traineeship qualifications range from Certificate II up to Advanced Diploma.
You can start the process of becoming a trainee at any time:
♦ If you’re at school
♦ If you’re just out of school
♦ If you’re already working
♦ If you’re unemployed.
As a trainee, you and an employer have a legal agreement called a training contract. This lasts until you have completed your training and both you and your employer agree you are competent. A training contract cannot be terminated without the mutual agreement of both you and your employer.
You’ll learn on-job under your supervisor at your place of work, as well as off-job with a training provider in order to complete your nationally recognised qualification. In some instances, training may be completely undertaken in your workplace. The state government may subsidise your off-job training, meaning you pay less towards course fees.
