For apprentices and trainees

​​The VRQA registers and monitors apprenticeships and traineeships in Victoria. It protects the interests of employers, apprentices and trainees in ensuring quality training is delivered with nationally recog​nised outcomes.

Anyone at least 15 years of age can undertake an apprenticeship or traineeship. You don't need a secondary school certificate or other qualification. You just need to find an employer prepared to take you on as an apprentice or trainee.

You could be:

  • a school-leaver
  • finishing Year 11 or 12
  • re-entering the workforce
  • an adult worker wanting to change careers.
