How do I find an apprenticeship?

If you want to get into a trade, an Australian Apprenticeship is the ideal pathway. You will undertake hands-on learning supervised by a qualified tradesperson, as well as off-the-job training at a TAFE or Registered Training Organisation so you’ll earn a nationally recognised qualification.

You may choose to find a direct employer that’s looking for an apprentice or trainee, or you could go through a Group Training Organisation (GTO) like MIGAS Apprentices & Trainees.

A GTO will employ you and place you with a host company where you’ll do your on-the-job training. We will also organise your formal qualification training, take care of your weekly pay processing and other admin, and most of all you will be supported by the MIGAS team throughout your Australian Apprenticeship.

We’re here to help and guide your through your training and to ensure you get everything out of your apprenticeship. This could mean finding you a new host company if you need different experience, or things don’t work out for any reason.

Rather than be on your own trying to find a new employer to continue your apprenticeship, MIGAS is there to support you so you have continuity of employment.

Get an Apprenticeship

Securing an apprenticeship or traineeship is just like applying for any job.

The best places to start looking are jobs boards like Seek or directly with an Australian Apprenticeship network provider. If you don’t find the exact role you’re looking for in your location, register with local companies like MIGAS and we will contact you when we have a potential match.

If you’re not sure what trade area is right for you, there are heaps of resources online that explain different types of apprenticeships and traineeships available. You can find detailed information on the trade apprenticeship specialisations that MIGAS offers here on our site.

Be sure to check the MIGAS Jobs Board for current opportunities.
