How do Apprenticeships work?

Apprenticeships and traineeships allow you to gain experience through a combination of on-the-job training and off-the-job training, in addition to earning a wage.  Apprenticeships are generally Certificate III level and take three to four years to complete. 

What DGT will do for you:

  • facilitate placing you with a host employer best suited to your needs

  • ensuring you are provided with the skills and knowledge necessary to successfully complete your qualification
  • provide a full induction including an introduction to Workplace Health and Safety
  • coordinate all on and off-the-job training
  • no charge for services to Apprentice/Trainees or their parents 


Apprenticeship types include full-time, part-time and school based. 

Full-time - Apprentices and Trainees work and train full-time, usually 36 to 38 hours a week.

Part-time - Apprentices and Trainees work and train no less than 15 hours a week, averaged over a four week cycle. Generally the nominal term is double that of a full-time schedule, however competency based training may mean that it can be completed in a shorter timeframe.

School-based - Apprentices and Trainees undertake this training as part of their high school studies. Employment and training arrangements must impact on their school timetable for the program to be considered school-based.
