What is a traineeship?
A traineeship is a contractual agreement between an employer and an individual who is employed as a trainee. A traineeship combines paid employment with formal training by JB Hunter Technology and on-the-job training with a workplace supervisor.
Types of telecommunications traineeships
Existing worker traineeships are undertaken where an employee has a three month or more employment relationship with their employer. The working relationship can be built up through full-time, part-time or casual employment or engagement as a seasonal or contract worker and includes periods of approved leave.
New worker traineeships are where someone is a new employee (employed for less than three months) and is signed up into a traineeship.
School-based traineeships are undertaken part-time while the trainee is still at school in years 10 - 12.
Telecommunications linesworker and telecommunications technician are trades listed on the Australian Government’s ‘National Skills Needs List’.
