Learn, Work and Earn!
Apprenticeships and traineeships combine training with working in a real job, with a real boss for a real wage. Apprentices and trainees work towards the completion of a nationally recognised qualification while learning valuable skills at work and under the guidance of an approved training organisation, such as ASTRA Group Services.
