Careers Pathway


An apprenticeship is the recognised way people are trained in a craft trade or profession. Apprentices are employees. An apprenticeship provides on-the-job training with an employer. It usually alternates between off-the-job training in an education centre and on-the-job training at your employer's workplace. An apprenticeship generally lasts for 2 to 4 years, during which time the apprentice will spend different periods in off-the-job training.



Trainees are full time students and not employed with the work placement company. Traineeships give participants the opportunity to develop cutting edge skills and knowledge on-the-job, making them more skilled, more employable and enhancing their career options. Trainees can secure employment with the work placement company after completion of the course and achievement of the award.
