Apprenticeships & Traineeships – For Employers

Completing a school-based apprenticeship or traineeship gives you a trade for life and lets you earn while you learn. Apprenticeships and traineeships combine structured on-the-job training (at your workplace) and off-the-job learning at a Registered Training Organisation to give you valuable skills and experience in your chosen field.

The Australian Trade College North Brisbane and MRAEL provide unrivaled support and solutions for businesses and young people to ensure the long term success for each and every school-based apprentice" Brett Kavanagh, College Principal.

What is a school-based apprenticeship or traineeship?

A school-based apprenticeship or traineeship is exactly the same as a traditional apprenticeship or traineeship. On-the-job training, valuable employment skills, a nationally-recognised qualification, while they also undertake their senior secondary subjects leading to their Queensland Certificate in Education (QCE). Apprentices must be 15 years or older.
