Start building your career with an apprenticeship or traineeship with CVGT Employment.
If you’ve just finished school, considering changing careers or re-entering the workforce, an apprenticeship or traineeship might be the solution you’ve been looking for.
Apprenticeships and traineeships combine work and training to achieve a nationally recognised qualification. They can be completed full-time, part-time or school-based.

Apprenticeships and traineeships are:
What is an apprenticeship?
Apprenticeships allow you to learn while you earn. You train on the job, study and earn an income all while working towards becoming a qualified tradesperson.
How long do apprenticeships take?
An apprenticeship normally takes three to four years in traditional trade areas such as carpentry, electrical, hairdressing and plumbing.
What is a traineeship?
Traineeships are similar to apprenticeships, but they concentrate on vocational or job areas such as office administration, information technology or hospitality.
How long do traineeships take?
A traineeship lasts one to two years. You’ll learn, work and earn, and when you successfully complete you will receive (at a minimum) a Certificate II qualification.
A School Based Apprenticeship or Traineeship (SBAT) enables senior secondary students to begin their apprenticeship or traineeship in years 10, 11 or 12, combining paid employment and structured work-related training.
SBATs are a pathway to employment in a trade or occupation, self-employment, further training or higher education. Apprenticeships and traineeships have similar structures and requirements, however they differ in occupations offered, length and Australian Qualified Framework certificate levels.
As a school-based apprentice or trainee, you will have a host employer who will employ and train you on the job, plus you will do some formal off-the-job training at Bendigo TAFE that will lead to a VET qualification. You will attend school part of the week, go to work on some days and attend Bendigo TAFE on other days.
