WHAT IT IS

This em­ploy­ment and train­ing path­way com­bines the phi­los­o­phy of an ap­pren­tice­ship – gain­ing skills while be­ing em­ployed – and that of higher ed­u­ca­tion, with work­ers ob­tain­ing a higher vo­ca­tional qual­i­fi­ca­tion than the cer­tifi­cate III typ­i­cally com­pleted when do­ing an ap­pren­tice­ship. Work­ers are em­ployed in a typ­i­cally non-trade in­dus­try, such as com­merce or tech­nol­ogy, and com­plete train­ing while they work to ob­tain a diploma, ad­vanced diploma or as­so­ciate de­gree.

EL­I­GI­BIL­ITY

Par­tic­i­pants so far have not been el­i­gi­ble if they have al­ready com­pleted a ter­tiary qual­i­fi­ca­tion, how­ever, a high school cer­tifi­cate has been re­quired as the min­i­mum ed­u­ca­tion.

OUT­COMES

Grad­u­ates ob­tain in­dus­try-rel­e­vant skills that may not have been pos­si­ble with a ter­tiary ed­u­ca­tion. It also helps em­ploy­ers build skilled work­forces more quickly.
