Telecommunications apprenticeships or traineeships are a great option for people starting a career or moving into the telecommunications industry. Apprenticeships offer many benefits to both individuals undertaking them and to employers hosting them, providing a popular entry point into the industry.
Apprenticeships and traineeships pathways also allow participants to earn a living while gaining the skills they will need on the job.
What is an apprenticeship?
An apprenticeship is a contractual agreement between an employer and an individual. In that agreement the employee will undertake appropriate training to fill the work role needed by the employer. The employer pays them a lower rate than a person with full qualifications while the employee works and continues to study.
A traineeship combines paid employment with formal training through the nominated Registered Training Organisation (RTO) and on-the-job training supported by a workplace supervisor.
Why should my company take on an apprentice?
- Invest in your employees future
