Pre-apprenticeship programs


Get a head start on your apprenticeship

Pre-vocational or pre-apprenticeship training (usually Certificate I and II) provides you with an insight to your chosen field before you begin an apprenticeship. These programs give you an understanding of how an industry works, the type of work and career pathways available, and equip you with the foundation skills needed for an apprenticeship. These courses are not compulsory study prior to an apprenticeship however many employers value pre-vocational training.

Completing pre-vocational training demonstrates to employers that you are ready to commit to training, are willing to learn and have developed job ready skills for that industry area.
