Benefits to the Trainee
A traineeship is a job combined with structured training. You must first find an employer who agrees to employ you as a trainee.
It will be necessary to contact an Australian Apprenticeships Support Provider to establish the traineeship.
The benefit for a trainee is that they acquire valuable work experience and a nationally recognised qualification. By undertaking your studies with OTEN, you will be able to fit your study program into your workplace schedule.

Before enrolling or re-enrolling
You will need to know:

- the year of your apprenticeship, this is calculated from the date you signed your apprenticeship contract, NOT your year of TAFE study
