For students

Work + Earn
In Western

There are a range of opportunities to study and work locally after secondary school. There are many local pathways which will give you access to earning while you are training, and securing a job.


Apprenticeships are a great way to combine training and employment and they can lead to a nationally recognised qualification.


Most traineeships range from a Certificate II level but can also be up to Diploma level in certain areas. They are available across a huge range of vocational areas.


Cadetships are a way in which businesses can support students studying at tertiary level to develop practical experience in their chosen field of study.
