Traineeships

What Are They and How Do They Work?

Traineeships

Traineeships are structured training programs that enable young people to gain a qualification through employment. They provide individuals with an opportunity to gain practical experience at work whilst receiving on and off-the-job training.

AFL SportsReady recruits people who are generally aged between 16 – 25 including school students, recent school leavers, adults returning to work and matches them with our host employers, supporting them to complete a traineeship that leads to a quality, on the job experience and nationally recognised qualifications.

The duration of a traineeship will depend on the qualification, but can include the following:

  • Full-Time up to 1 year (38 hours per week) – Certificate III or Certificate IV level
  • Part-Time up to 2 years (minimum 15 hours per week) Certificate III or Certificate IV
  • School-Based 2 years (completed over years 11 & 12) – Certificate II or III

    The Australian Government’s Boosting Apprenticeship Commencement (BAC) funding scheme is designed to help businesses recover from the impact of COVID-19 whilst also helping young people find a job.

    The scheme provides a subsidy to businesses of 50% of the wages paid to an eligible apprentice/trainee who commence their apprenticeship by 31 March 2022 to a maximum of $7,000 per BAC quarter.

    The most successful traineeships result from engaged host employers and supervisors who support their trainee’s development. We believe it is essential for host employers to take time to understand their trainee and how they learn, which helps get the most out of the experience.

    As a host employer, you have a few essential responsibilities:

    • Provide a safe working environment
    • Provide meaningful work for your trainee to complete
    • Provide adequate supervision and guidance
    • Sign the fortnightly timesheets prepared by your trainee
    • Help develop and support your trainee throughout their traineeship
    • Support the trainee’s formal education
  • plus Created with Sketch. minus Created with Sketch. What is the cost?

    Costs vary on when the trainee completed high school, their prior qualifications and the state in which you are located. On average you can expect to pay approximately $17 per hour, which equates to roughly $35K per annum. This cost is for the trainee salary and does not include the cost of education or AFL SportsReady’s servicing fees.
