When we talk about apprenticeships, many people think about the traditional trades, such as plumbing, electrical and construction. While there are certainly some great opportunities in these spaces, you can undertake an apprenticeship in a wide range of fields, from cake decorating to aviation engineering. With over 500 career choices, there really is something for everyone.
Unlike university degrees, apprenticeships don’t require a set ATAR. Different qualifications will have different requirements, but typically an interest in the field and a can-do attitude are a great start. Employers want apprentices who are willing to learn – not those who already know it all.
