Get a headstart on your career, earn a wage and complete a nationally recognised qualification with ATC Work Smart

Doing an apprenticeship is a great way to turn your interests into a career as there are literally hundreds of trades to choose from.

An Apprenticeship combines practical work experience, a paid job and nationally accredited training in one simple package.

Apprenticeships generally last three to four years and cover traditional trades such as building and construction, electrical, automotive, engineering, manufacturing, hairdressing and cooking. When you successfully complete an apprenticeship, you become a qualified tradesperson.

  • Australian Apprenticeships are available to anyone of working age with eligibility to work in Australia. No specific school levels, certificates or other qualifications are needed to start one.

  • Apprenticeships are advertised on our jobs board and can be full-time, part-time or school-based.

  • You apply for the position by submitting an application and cover letter

  • ATC Work Smart will place you with a local/host business, where you will receive hands-on practical training and work experience while completing a nationally recognised qualification and getting paid as you learn!

  • You will be employed by ATC Work Smart under a training contract – not by the host business. This means that we’ll work hard to find you the best place and will manage everything for the entire duration of your apprenticeship.

  • An apprentice will undertake qualifications from Certificate Level III to Level VI.

  • When you successfully complete an apprenticeship, you become a qualified tradesperson. “Tradies” are considered to be professionals with a high level of both practical and theoretical knowledge of their trade.
