Steps on how to become an apprentice or trainee at CIT

1. Choose an industry or job that interests you.

If you’re not sure what you want to do, try the SkillsRoad Career quiz.

Apprenticeships and traineeships aren’t just for trades. Visit the CIT apprenticeships and traineeships page for study options.

2. Find a job with an employer who’s looking to take on an apprentice, trainee, or Australian School-based Apprentice (ASbA).

Many apprentice and trainee job opportunities are advertised online:

Also, ask around. Sometimes friends or family have their own business or know someone who’s looking to employ an apprentice or trainee in their business.

3. Sign a Training Contact with your employer. This is a must! It’s a legal contract that formalises your apprenticeship/traineeship, sets obligations for you and your employer and gives you and your employer access to government support.

Your employer should contact an Apprenticeship Network Provider (ANP) to arrange signing of the training contract.  Search for ANP by region here.

4. Enrol at CIT. Once CIT is notified of your Training Contract, we will contact you to discuss your learning needs, set up your training plan and organise your enrolment.

We know entering the workforce or starting in a new job is a big thing. CIT has a range of student support services available to help you manage your training commitments.
