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

Doing a Traineeship is a great way to turn your interests into a rewarding career as there are literally hundreds of vocations to choose from, please see below for some popular industries. Australian traineeships usually take between 12-18 months to complete, are available to anyone of working age with eligibility to work in Australia and combine time at work with on and off the job training.

  • Traineeships 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 traineeship.

  • Most traineeships take about 12 -18 months to complete, but you can graduate sooner if you achieve the necessary competencies earlier.

  • There are lots of benefits to doing a traineeship including earning while you learn, gaining a nationally recognised qualification and a step ahead of the competition for the best jobs.

"Traineeships develop your skills but also develop YOU as a professional,  you will meet different people, 

open new opportunities and learn so much about yourself"
