Workforce Development, Apprenticeships and Training

You don’t have to go to a college or university to gain a qualification.

Traineeships in Western Australia provide a pathway to a nationally recognised qualification, plus trainees include invaluable work experience.

Traineeships can be full time, part time or even school-based and are usually 12 months to two years in duration.

Water Corporation apprenticeships

The Water Corporation offers young people an opportunity to get paid while gaining trade qualifications in mechanical, electrical, fitter/machinist and welding/boiler-making disciplines.

Traineeships for young people in the WA Public Sector

Many Western Australian public sector traineeships are facilitated through the Public Sector Commission’s ‘Public sector traineeship recruitment and referral service’.

This service offers opportunities for young people to be selected by public sector agencies for school-based and full-time traineeships.
