Australian  Apprenticeships

Thinking about your future, the career of your dreams, or just keen to get out there and start earning? Have you considered signing up for an Apprenticeship?

Australian Apprenticeships are open to anyone of working age and offer you the opportunity to learn new skills and get paid, there are over 500 different jobs you can become an apprentice in.

If you’re not sure where to start, contact someone from the Australian Apprenticeship Support Network (Apprenticeship Network) in your area, they’ll be able to answer your queries and help point you in the right direction.

Use the Australian Apprenticeships database to search by post code, city or suburb to locate a Support Network near you.

You could also spend some time on the Australian Apprenticeships Pathways website, explore job and training descriptions, potential careers and more.

You could even start your vocational training, earn a wage and get hands on experience while you’re still at high school, and the training units could count towards your high school certificate. If this is something that interests you, speak to your parents and your school, or contact an Apprenticeship Support Network to discuss your options.

Make you studies easier with a scholarship

YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE A SUPERSTAR TO GET ONE - some of them just have an ATAR-cut off, others focus on your leadership skills, sporting ability or community service. 

A scholarship is a part-payment or full-payment of your course or study fees (which may also include things like accommodation, travel, mentoring and living expenses). They’re offered because people can see the value of further study and want to remove the barriers to study that some people experience, and to reward students for hard work.

Scholarships generally fit into two categories – one based on your personal achievements, and one that helps people who may have been disadvantaged.

There are also scholarships for special interest groups, such as for the children of veterans, or agricultural industry scholarships.

Equity Scholarships                                                  Merit Scholarships

  • Financial Hardship                                                           Academic Achievement
  • Disturbance/upheaval at school                                    Sporting Ability
  • Remote & Regional Students                                         All-round Achievement Female Students                                                              
  • Community Service                                                        
  • Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander
  •  Refugee Status

Why apply? Could I get one?

The short answer is ‘Because you can’ and ‘YES’…

While some scholarships are highly competitive, others often fail to attract applicants – which means anyone who applies (and meets the eligibility criteria) could find themselves successful.

Applying for scholarships is good practice for applying for jobs later on, plus scholarships look amazing on your resume, so apply even if you don’t think you’ll get it. You never know what could happen.

Which scholarship is right for me?

First, you could choose your preferred university, TAFE or VET provider, then see what scholarships they offer. If you can’t easily find their scholarships, then call their future student centre and ask them. If you’ve got a good case for assistance, they may offer you a scholarship even if they don’t normally have them.

Or, you could search for scholarships, find ones that would be suitable and apply for them all, then choose your institution and program based on which ones you receive. There’s no limit to how many scholarships you can apply for, as long as you’re eligible.
