Our apprentices tell us that it's the balance between working and studying that will really give you the edge. When you're not at TAFE learning the technicalities of your trade, you'll be on site putting what you've learnt into practice with heavy machinery and equipment. You'll have space to balance both study and work.
You'll be challenged and stretched, but you'll find it's the best way to develop and learn. During the program, you'll be able to draw upon the experience of your team and have the guidance from your manager to make sure your career starts in the best way.
At the end of your apprenticeship you'll be a fully qualified tradesperson and if you have the desire, you can progress into other opportunities like supervision of study. Disciplines we commonly look for are mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and heavy fabrication.
Regardless of your year of study, you must have the flexible and proactive attitude to make the most of combining studying and working.
