Head Start Program

A pre-apprenticeship development program designed for Year 12 students who want to secure a trade career after school.

For 30 years MIGAS Apprentices and Trainees has matched job seekers with career opportunities in skilled trades through an apprenticeship or traineeship pathway.

That means we know the skills, characteristics and attributes employers look for in their workforce, and understand how to nurture the next generation of apprentices to ensure they are highly employable and ready to work.

The HeadStart Program is delivered in partnership with TAFE Queensland SkillsTech and students will complete the following:

  • Certificate II in Engineering Pathways (MEM20413) delivered face-to-face and online at the TAFE Queensland SkillsTech Acacia Ridge Campus.
  • Four employability skills workshops facilitated by apprenticeship and traineeship experts.
  • A minimum of five days practical work placement with an industry employer.

For intake dates and program details, download the HeadStart brochure.
