Australian Apprenticeships are available to anyone of working age and offer you opportunities to learn new skills and be paid in over 500 different jobs.

Australian Apprenticeships can be undertaken full-time, part-time or while you’re still at school.

You can use this qualification to work anywhere in Australia and in many countries overseas.

To help decide if you should do an apprenticeship, visit for information about available apprenticeships, future careers and aptitude quizzes.

How much you get paid will depend on the award or enterprise agreement you are employed under. 

After you decide to become an apprentice, you will need to find an employer to take you on.

You and your employer will need to sign a training contract with an Australian Apprenticeship Support Network (Apprenticeship Network) provider.

If your apprenticeship is in a skills need area, you might be eligible for a Trade Support Loan to help cover your costs of living and learning.
