What Are Traineeships?

WHAT ARE TRAINEESHIPS?

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.

AFL SportsReady is your legal employer and place you in a company for approximately one year (depending on the type of traineeship you choose). We support you every step of the way with a dedicated Field Officer and an Educator who helps you complete your coursework.

Think of a traineeship as a 12-month ‘apprenticeship for the office’, that combines full-time work with a little bit of study. It’s the ideal mix of:

  • GET PAID: Earn while you learn (National Training Wage)
  • GET EXPERIENCE: Real work-place experience
  • GET NETWORKED: Build a network of key industry contacts
  • GET EDUCATED:  Combine work with education and study for a fully funded qualification
  • GET SUPPORTED:  Dedicated AFL SportsReady staff members (Field Officers and Educators) will support you every step of the way
  • GET INTO UNI: Direct entry and course credit to one of our University partners (Conditions apply, visit University partners for details)
  • GET A HEAD START: Experience + Education + Networks

If you are an Aboriginal and/ or Torres Strait Islander, you will also receive on-on-one mentoring support and networking opportunities.
