A pre-apprenticeship is entry level training which can provide a pathway into the industry of your choice. Generally, they are offered in the traditional trades industries, such as Carpentry, Electrical, Plumbing and Automotive.
The term pre-vocational or pre-traineeship may also be used when talking about entry level training in non-traditional trade industries, such as Hospitality, and Animal Care and Management.
Pre-apprenticeships can assist in improving literacy and numeracy skills as well as focusing on developing some essential work related skills. These skills can help you be better prepared for work and be a stand-out job candidate.
These programs can vary between states and territories, and industries. Some may involve a work experience component and some may attract a credit transfer to an apprenticeship level qualification.
