New Apprenticeships

A ‘New Apprenticeship’ is an apprenticeship or traineeship that offers new training flexibilities, new support service arrangements and new opportunities for structured training. They cover full or part-time paid work and training, and leads to a national qualification.


New Apprenticeships are a great career option. They combine practical work with structured training to give you a nationally recognised qualification and the experience you need to get the job you want. You don’t have to wait to until you leave school to get started. Many schools now offer the option for students to start a New Apprenticeship while attending school. The New Apprenticeships Website provides information on how New Apprenticeships work, the benefits for you, New Apprenticeship Centers (NACs) and where to get more information.


New Apprenticeships are the best way to combine training and employment. They offer new opportunities in tourism, hospitality and caravans, as well as new support service arrangements and flexible training. New Apprenticeships provide real benefits for your business. Your New Apprentice contributes to your bottom line with practical skills and knowledge acquired through his or her training. No two businesses are the same, and that is why New Apprenticeships have been designed to be flexible, while at the same time providing nationally recognised quality training developed by industry for industry. The New Apprenticeships Website explains how New Apprenticeships work, the benefits for your business, New Apprenticeship Centers (NAC’s) and where to get more information. For further information contact you local State/Territory Training Authority, or the New Apprenticeships Website.
