A SWTAFE apprenticeship or traineeship is a partnership between you, your employer and SWTAFE.
Your employer will teach you skills on-the-job while SWTAFE provides formal training. This allows you to learn from qualified academic sta¤, as well as someone who is an expert in the industry in which you’re interested.
