Traineeships

Our Traineeship Program runs for 12 months and commences at the beginning of each year in January. This is a great opportunity to get hands-on experience and theoretical knowledge relevant to your chosen field of work. We have highly experienced Mentors  who will assist you every step of the way and provide guidance and endless support to help you achieve the best possible results.

How a Traineeship works

A Traineeship is the time spent learning a job under a supervisor. You can do a traineeship in just about any workplace.
Traineeship qualifications range from Certificate II up to an Advanced Diploma.

As a trainee, you and your employer will have a legal agreement called a training contract. This lasts until you have completed your training and both you and your employer agree you are competent. 
You’ll be supervised while learning on the job, and you will also attend off-job training with a training provider. In some cases, training may be completely undertaken in your workplace.
 

Apprenticeships

Our Apprenticeship Program runs for up to 4 years depending on your chosen trade qualification. During your Apprenticeship you will get straight to work with your dedicated Mentor who will guide you in your day-to-day work and provide you with advice on a range of disciplines relevant to your qualification.

We pride ourselves in creating a supportive and friendly environment that allows open communication amongst team members. Being an Apprentice at the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder is challenging, fast-paced, varied and rewarding.
