Starting your Apprenticeship
Interested in an apprenticeship or traineeship but not sure where to begin?
There’s a lot of pressure on school students to figure out what comes next, but here at Skill Hire we understand how daunting it can be to make a start in a new career. That’s why our team works to provide a personalised approach to career development.
If an apprenticeship or traineeship is something which has sparked your interest, here are a few tips from the team at Skill Hire about how to choose what’s right for you.
“I want to start an apprenticeship, but where do I start?”
There are hundreds of choices when it comes to choosing which career path you want to follow, but before you make a start you need to consider what best works with your interests. If you are still at school, you can talk to a VET coordinator, or access free advice through our career consultants.
Before you commence any apprenticeship or traineeship, you will need to have a resume. It doesn’t need to be extensive, but it needs to have the essentials, such as your; contact details, school achievements, work experience, interests, skills and goals. This is your first impression, so make it count by showing us who you are!
Get in touch with us and send through your resume, this is where we’ll learn about what you’re interested in and how we can help, after that, one of our team will get in touch with you and discuss the next steps.
Congratulations! You’ve snagged yourself an interview. We’ll get in touch with you and arrange a time to meet. This is when we will get to know you more, learn what interests you and most of all, how we can help you.

Skill Hire really helped me to see that I can accomplish something if I set my mind to it and I completed my course 2 months prior to the completion date. Cheers guys!
