Mia – Completed Cert III and Cert IV in Business

What is the best thing about doing a Traineeship?

Learning on the job, and feeling like you are a part of the company you are training with. You have real responsibilities and the business relies on you to finish your jobs.

You also learn things that you wouldn’t learn within the course, and vice versa. Everything you learn can be adapted into your assessment and every day on the job, and you start to understand why you do certain things to make your job easier.

How do you think a Traineeship will help your future career and do you feel proud of what you’re achieving/have achieved?

I was able to get that experience that every job is after. If I look at job applications now I see “requires 2-3 years’ experience” and I know I have the knowledge and the experience to apply. I guess it has given me the confidence. I know I can do anything, I have learnt that from my Traineeship.  Being able to power through and complete the certificate while also working just proves to me I can – I am very proud of what I have achieved.

What benefit do you think a Traineeship would be for someone considering beginning one?  

The experience you gain from a Traineeship. You get that piece of paper and the experience needed for a real job. You are also supported throughout the whole Traineeship, with all different kinds of people to speak to if you’re ever struggling because at the end of the day everyone wants to see you succeed. There is a massive change from High School and working full time in an office, and I believe that a Traineeship is a good stepping stone into easing into working full time. You don’t feel as though you’ve been thrown into the deep end.


Jason – Completed 
Cert III and Cert IV Business

What is the best thing about doing a Traineeship?

Being able to be placed into a position with or without experience and then learning the industry with hands-on training and you get rewarded with a qualification.

It did wonders for my development, self-esteem and future career awareness.

How do you think a Traineeship will help your future career and do you feel proud of what you achieved?

I was proud to walk away with 2 qualifications with WorkVentures and getting to know passionate people who love doing what they do. I feel proud I was able to leave them feeling accomplished with what I achieved and then walked right into a position I love with incredible pay and future career pathways.

What benefit do you think a Traineeship would be for someone considering beginning one?  

If someone is considering a Traineeship, my suggestion would be, “Don’t think, just do it”. You just don’t know how beneficial one is until you achieve great things that one can only experience being on a Traineeship.
