How the course works
Students enrolling in this program must be working full-time or part-time in a suitable business environment. For those in a full-time traineeship, a minimum of 38 hours per week (averaged over a 4-week period) is required to be worked. A trainer and assessor visits the student in the workplace over the course of their traineeship. In addition to the face-to-face learning support, students’ progress and learning support needs will be monitored via telephone/email contact in between workplace visits.
This course is also available as a School Based Traineeship for Year 10, 11 and 12 high school students. A school-based traineeship combines paid work, training and school with a nationally recognised qualification, whilst gaining credit toward the HSC.

Practical and work-related activities designed to allow each student the opportunity to apply their learning in a real work environment are undertaken. These activities will vary, e.g. research an organisational policy and procedure, watch a colleague complete a task, buddy with a colleague on a workplace project or gain experience in undertaking a particular activity.
Students enrolling in this program are required to attend class 2 days per week from 9:00am – 4:00pm. The remaining 3 days are dedicated to self-directed learning and assessment activities. Students are also required to attend 2 weeks of work experience.
This program includes training delivery and a range of interactive activities designed to build student’s underpinning knowledge and develop competence in each unit. Students will also get the opportunity to practice and apply their learning by practicing key skills such as communication, problem solving, teamwork and prioritising.
Classroom students participate in work experience. This provides students with an opportunity to:
Practice newly learnt skills and apply theory learnt in the classroom.
Build the skills that employers want like teamwork, communication and reliability.
Increase confidence and show individuals they are ready for work.
