Can I get an apprenticeship without experience?

Most apprenticeships and traineeships do not require you to have work experience in the trade area you want to get into. Australian Apprenticeships are designed for beginners in that way.

However, you may have other work and life experiences that are relevant to your apprenticeship of choice.

This could be from the subjects you studied at school, both paid and voluntary work experience, activities you participate in like team sport, and especially the interest and commitment you have for your desired trade.

At MIGAS we want to match you with the right role that will see you completing your apprenticeship to become a fully qualified tradesperson.
