About School Based Traineeship’s:

Australia has a shortage – a shortage that you could help us fill with a traineeship.

Did you know?

You can start your traineeship in the Hardware Industry while you are still at school – and get paid!  How good is that!

A traineeship is open to you once you turn 15 year old.

If you take up an Australian School-based Traineeship, you can undertake a nationally-recognised qualification part-time as a trainee and earn a wage – while still working towards your secondary school certificate.

Getting started:

  • Consider Hardware as a career option and there are many career pathways available.
  • Talk to your school careers adviser, parents and friends about the careers that you could do in the Hardware Industry.
  • Look at recruitment ads to see what skills are needed.
  • Register for job alerts in the Hardware Industry.
  • Your school careers adviser may know or help you find an employer who would like to employ you as a trainee.
