A pre-apprenticeship is entry level training which can provide a pathway into the industry of choice. Generally, they are offered in the traditional trades industries, such as Carpentry, Electrical, Plumbing and Automotive.
The term ‘pre-vocational’ or ‘pre-traineeship’ may also be used when talking about entry level training in non-traditional trade industries, such as Hospitality and Animal Care and Management.
Pre-apprenticeships can assist in improving literacy and numeracy skills, as well as focusing on developing some essential work-related skills. These skills can help students be better prepared for work and be a standout job candidate.
These programs can vary between states, territories and industries. Some may involve a work experience component, and some may attract recognition to an apprenticeship level qualification.
