This offering is only for eligible apprentices. For further information about this course offering, please contact the Head Teacher on 9217 3450.
You will need to attend approximately 18 hours of class a week over 3 days per week (block release week). An indication of how your weekly timetable may look is: 9:00am to 3:30pm
Before you can start an apprenticeship, you first need to find an employer in the industry you're interested in that will support you through your studies. You and your employer should contact an Apprenticeship Network Provider (APN) and tell them you're interested in studying at Sydney TAFE. The APN will help you and your employer to complete a Training Contract. Once you have a Training Contract, we will help you, your employer and the APN to complete a Training Plan Proposal. Once you have both these documents, the APN will lodge them with State Training Services, who will provide further advice about next steps.
