HOW CAREERS ARE MADE THROUGH TRAINEESHIPS

Traineeships can lead to successful, meaningful, professional jobs – with great salaries and outstanding career prospects.

Young people across Australia need support in 2020 more than ever. Having tackled the challenges of COVID-19, many have witnessed or experienced first hand the uncertainty around career paths: with job losses and reduced working hours impacting them, their family and friends. With this in mind, the importance of helping young people to understand career pathways and dispel misconceptions about Traineeships is more important than ever. There are so many ways to get a foot in the door, and completing a Traineeship is certainly one of them.

Initially inspired by being paid to get a qualification, many of AFL SportsReady’s alumni have gone on to have successful careers built on the foundation of their traineeship.  This initiative will explore their career journeys.

WHAT IS A TRAINEESHIP

 
It’s a paid, employment and education training program that gives you a nationally recognised qualification. They are usually full-time, but can also be part-time or school-based. You can learn more about Traineeships and the many industries you can work in by clicking here.
