Vocational education and training (VET)

VET gives people workplace skills and technical knowledge. It emphasises hands-on experience, and teaches many skills in demand in NSW.

Is a traineeship or apprenticeship right for me?

An apprenticeship or traineeship is one of the best ways to get hands-on training and a nationally recognised qualification while being paid. They’re more than a foot in the door to gain experience - they’re a great way to start your career as they give you the skills employers need. You can even begin your apprenticeship or traineeship while you’re at school. And many of them are fee-free!


As an apprentice, you’ll spend three to four years learning a traditional trade such as building and construction, automotive, cooking, engineering, hairdressing or manufacturing. You’ll graduate as a qualified tradesperson.


As a trainee, you’ll spend one to three years, depending on your industry and qualification, learning a vocation in areas such as agriculture, information technology, hospitality, business, digital media or financial services.
