Australian Apprenticeships can be done by anyone of working age with eligibility to work in Australia. There are no specific apprenticeships or traineeships just for adults.
According to the FairWork Ombudsman, an adult apprentice is anyone over the age of 21 when they commence their Australian Apprenticeship which relates to things like wages and incentives, not to a specific type of apprenticeship program. Employers and apprentices and trainees should look at the FairWork website for information about pay rates.
Apprenticeships and traineeships can provide a pathway to a career change, re-entry to the workforce, or can be used as a way to up-skill within your current industry.
For information about financial support or incentives contact an Australian Apprenticeship Support Network (AASN) provider.
