The first and second years of an apprenticeship can be financially difficult for those entering the workforce for the first time.
It can be even more so if you're an adult aged worker and are re-skilling or changing careers. No matter what your age, an apprenticeship or traineeship is the same for all. This experience can benefit their new employer but also other staff.
These skills and experienced gained from education, training, work and life experiences can also assist in shortening the training time required. Recognition of prior learning RPL is the formal recognition of these skills and can be discussed with the training organisation upon commencement.
You do not need a secondary school certificate or other qualification to be able to do an adult apprenticeship or adult traineeship.
Your interest could stem from simply wishing to change careers or a need to re-enter the workforce. Some businesses see opportunities to grow their business by formally training existing workers.
