Completing a pre-apprenticeship or pre-traineeship course can be a real advantage when applying to an employer for an apprenticeship or traineeship. A pre-apprenticeship or pre-traineeship teaches youth the basic skills of a particular industry, so you bring those skills and knowledge to the work place when starting an apprenticeship or traineeship.
Pre-apprenticeship or pre-traineeship training also gives an employer peace of mind. They know that their new apprentice has experienced the industry before taking on the commitment of an apprenticeship or traineeship and are passionate about the field too! Pre-apprenticeships or pre-traineeships are taught on campus and are conducted within a simulated workplace environment. Pre-apprenticeships or pre-traineeships start at various times throughout the year and come in a variety of formats. One of the most popular is three full weeks of classroom based training and then a week of work experience.
