Does MIGAS employ mature aged apprentices?

Yes. There is no age limit on any of our apprenticeship and traineeship jobs, unless the role is specifically designed for a school-based apprentice or trainee.

Under Australian Apprenticeships, ‘mature age’ is considered to be 21 years or older. So don’t be put off by the term, or think you’re too old to start an apprenticeship or traineeship.

Some trades and host companies are very happy to take on older candidates as they often bring life and work experience to a role that a school leaver does not have yet. Read more about mature age apprenticeships.

If you’re looking to get into a trade or switch careers, an adult apprenticeship pathway is a great choice.
