This course is available as a traineeship.

Entrance requirements for traineeships

You must be employed in a training contract by an appropriate organisation to study an apprenticeship or traineeship. 

In a traineeship you also gain hands-on skills and work experience, and improve your employment prospects, while earning a wage. On successful completion you will gain a nationally recognised qualification which can lead to rewarding career options. The difference between a traineeship and an apprenticeship is that a traineeship can be either a full time or part time employment based training arrangement, usually for a nominal duration of 12 months or more, generally in a non-trade related area. 

To find out how to arrange a traineeship and study at South Metropolitan TAFE, please contact the Jobs and Skills Centre closest to you.

Attendance in class

This course is equivalent to 3 days per week when studied full time across one semester. This includes one day a week in a simulated business at some locations (Murdoch, Mandurah, Rockingham, Thornlie).

At-home study

As well as the in-class component, you will need to complete approximately 8-10 hours of additional study each week outside of class hours, including private study, assignment preparation, and research.

You will need to have the basic technical requirements for at-home study. If you don’t have access to a computer and WiFi at home, we recommend using our library computers during library hours.

Work placement

Work placement is not a requirement for this course.

What you need for your first day of class

On your first day you should bring your SM TAFE confirmation enrolment receipt, your student ID, stationery (pen, exercise book, file and a USB storage device).

Your lecturers will advise you at orientation of any additional resource requirements such as textbooks and software applications, as well as providing information on how to access or purchase student copies/licences. 

Dress requirements - smart casual dress at all times.
