If you’re thinking of starting an apprenticeship or traineeship, Major Training can support you throughout this process. As a Registered Training Organisation (RTO), we have the resources to arrange custom training solutions and apprenticeships in QLD.
Allowing you to earn while you learn, apprenticeships involve being taught a skilled trade through a combination of practical learning and school-based study. Trainees are trained in a vocational area such as early childhood education, and receive a certificate upon completing their training.
To help you realise your career ambitions, Major Training can give you essential information on the steps involved with earning an apprenticeship or traineeship.
Starting an Apprenticeship or Traineeship
Like most employment opportunities, apprenticeships and traineeships can be highly competitive. Major Training can help you secure a position in your preferred field by taking the time to understand your strengths and goals. We work in partnership with the Australian Apprenticeship Networks to offer apprentice training plans tailored to your needs.
You don’t need to hold a secondary school certificate or any other qualification to start an apprenticeship or traineeship. You can start this type of qualification whether you’re leaving school, changing careers, or looking to have your existing skillset formally recognised.
However, apprenticeships and traineeships still come with eligibility requirements in QLD. These requirements relate to:
- Visa restrictions
- Training arrangements.
Major Training can confirm whether you meet all the necessary requirements to qualify for your chosen apprenticeship or traineeship.

School Leaver Apprenticeships
Major Training can help you become a trade apprentice while you’re still at school. Designed for Year 11 and 12 students, school-leaver apprenticeships give students the chance to earn practical skills and real-world experience while completing their high school studies. This type of training is a great way to transition into paid employment, and can equip you with the skills needed to join the workforce as soon as you finish high school.
To qualify for a school-leaver apprenticeship, you must have your school’s agreement to undertake school-based training, as well as an employer who is willing to train you in their workplace. Major Training can help you facilitate this arrangement.
Major Training provides several payment options to apprentices and trainees. Depending on your circumstances, you may qualify for any of these funding options:
- State funding (which includes the VET In Schools program)
