Apprenticeships & Traineeships

University isn’t your only choice!

When it comes to acquiring qualifications, the traditional route of attending university is no longer the sole choice. Those who wish to immediately develop practical skills and gain hands-on experience can explore the numerous apprenticeship and traineeship opportunities available in Australia’s labour market.

MiHaven Training is registered and regulated by the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA), and is approved by the Department of Employment, Small Business, and Training (DESBT) to issue nationally recognised qualifications for certain apprenticeships and traineeships through the User Choice program.

Depending on eligibility, Queenslanders can tap into a maximum of two government contributions, no matter their age. Starting an apprenticeship or traineeship is a level playing field for all, regardless of age. Older apprentices and trainees bring with them maturity, reliability, life experience, and knowledge that can benefit not only employers but also their fellow colleagues.

Types of
Apprenticeships / Traineeships

There are 3 types of Traineeships/Apprenticeships.

Full-time or Part-time

Full-time Apprentices/Trainees work and train an average of 38 hours per week and have ongoing employment.
• Part-time Apprentices/Trainees are rostered to work on a regular basis, working and training no less than 15 hours per week, averaged over a four-week cycle.
• Existing workers may be employed as an Apprentice/Trainee.
• The term of a part-time Apprenticeship/Traineeship is generally double that of the full-time Apprenticeship/Traineeship term.

Adult and Mature age

Commencing an Apprenticeship/Traineeship is the same for all, no matter what age. Older Apprentices/Trainees provide maturity, reliability, life experience and knowledge that can be valuable not only to employers, but to other staff. A mature-aged Apprentice/Trainee’s existing skills and experience (gained through education, training, work and life experiences) may provide them with Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) credit and may reduce their training time. Employing a mature age worker may attract specific incentives through the Australian Government.


School-based Apprentices/Trainees undertake an Apprenticeship/Traineeship as part of their high school studies (generally in years 10, 11 and 12). A school-based Apprentice/Trainee’s employment and/or training arrangements must impact on their school timetable for the program to be considered school-based. The term of a school-based Apprenticeship/Traineeship is generally double that of the full-time Apprenticeship/Traineeship.
