  • WHAT DO I NEED TO APPLY?

    You will need a cover letter and a resume highlighting your interests in the chosen trade and the relevant skills you bring to your apprenticeship.

    A cover letter is your opportunity to tell us:

    • a little bit about you,
    • why you want the apprenticeship, and
    • what makes you right for this role.

    Tell us about what interests you and what motivates you to succeed. Share your story and why it will make you a great apprentice.

    Think of your resume as a catalogue of your skills and experience. We’d like to see:

    • your school and subjects listed along with your grades;
    • include pre-vocational certificates you have completed; and
    • any full-time or part-time work or work experience.

    Make sure you include any work experience or volunteer work where you may have had the opportunity to be part of a team or exposed to the trade or industry. And don’t forget to list any clubs or groups you are actively involved in.

  • CAN I APPLY FOR MULTIPLE ROLES?

    Yes, you certainly can.

    To be considered for multiple roles you must apply for each position separately.

    Be mindful that these are all very different trade specialisations that require different strengths and interests.

    We suggest you develop a tailored cover letter for each role highlighting your strengths in the different apprenticeships on offer.
