What training is involved in an Australian Apprenticeship?
All apprenticeships and traineeships involve studying towards a vocational education and training qualification. The training varies depending on the qualification, location, and the arrangement between the employer and training provider. Some apprentices and trainees may do some study online, while others will be classroom based.
The employer will also train the apprentice or trainee on the job. This is an important part of any Australian Apprenticeship, to develop the work skills needed for that job.
What are the language, literacy and numeracy requirements for this training?
Language, literacy and numeracy skills are an important foundation for the training that will be done as an apprenticeship or traineeship. Higher level qualifications typically require higher literacy and numeracy skills.
The Practice Aptitude Quizzes allow someone to assess their literacy and numeracy abilities. These quizzes assess the skills required for an entry-level position and are contextualised to the industry.
