Fee-Free Apprenticeships

Funding body: NSW Government - VET

Start date: 01/07/2018


There’s never been a better time to start an apprenticeship in NSW. From 1 July 2018, the NSW Government is paying the course cost for 100,000 new apprenticeships – meaning students no longer face a qualification fee of up to $2000.

Apprenticeships are a great career pathway. They combine on-the-job training with classroom study to give you the skills and experience employers are looking for. Apprenticeships generally take around 3-4 years to complete, and apprentices earn a salary while they learn.

There are more than 120 different apprenticeship courses available in NSW, in a range of industries including construction, cooking, aviation and automotive. Learning a trade is a smart way to secure your future – in the next 12 months alone, experts predict NSW will need another 50,000 skilled construction workers and 19,000 chefs.
