What age can you do an apprenticeship?

You can commence an Australian Apprenticeship at a variety of ages.

School-based Apprenticeships (ASbAs) are typically in grades 10, 11 or 12 and pair their high school studies with a paid part-time role in their trade or vocational area of interest.

Otherwise, if you’re of working age and are eligible to work in Australia, you can apply for an apprenticeship or traineeship. You must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident, or a New Zealand citizen with an appropriate visa.

Adult or mature age apprentices are anyone aged 21 or over when they commence their training. 

MIGAS employs ASbAs, school leavers, and mature age apprentices and trainees.
