Apprenticeships and traineeships

TAFE New England is well known for its commitment to high quality training. We have a long history of delivering quality trainee and apprentice training in partnership with business in the New England and North West regions through opportunities such as the Australian Apprenticeship Scheme. This scheme is designed to provide flexible on and off the job training for new entrants to the workforce and those already employed.

Our industry qualified teachers give students hands-on, relevant skills and knowledge to create highly qualified, reliable and work ready employees. Our flexible training options mean apprentices and trainees get the most out of our teachers. We can build customised programs for groups of students with the same employer.

To ensure the progress of your trainee or apprentice, registered employers can use Employer e-Services to track outcomes, with a view to improving retention and completion.
