Leap in with the leader

We’re skilling up apprentices and trainees across everymajor industry, every day.

Our up-to-date training meets the needs of employers and delivers real job outcomes for students. Apprenticeships and Traineeships combine training with paid employment.

Training can be delivered part-time, full-time, on or on the job, on-campus or in the workplace; or a combination to best suit the student and the business.

We also have purpose-built facilities in Warrnambool, Hamilton and Portland.

Apprenticeships and Traineeships are a great way to kick start your career at the end of school and gain a nationally recognised qualification. Or, if you’re still at school you can undertake a school based Apprenticeship or Traineeship while completing VCE or VCAL.

There are also lots of opportunities for mature aged workers.
