About government-subsidised training

About pre-apprenticeship courses

This course is available to study as a pre-apprenticeship. A pre-apprenticeship is a great way to get a feel for the industry before committing to an apprenticeship.

Some pre-apprenticeships can help reduce the length of a formal apprenticeship. This only applies to selected courses approved by the Victorian Registration and Qualifications Authority (VRQA). To find out if this applies to your pre-apprenticeship contact your training provider.

For more information about pre-apprenticeships, see our Pre-Apprenticeships page.

About occupations in demand

Occupations in demand are marked with this symbol . If you see a related job marked with this symbol, it’s identifying a role that is currently, or is at risk of, experiencing a skills shortage.

When an occupation has a skills shortage, it means the chances of getting a job after completing your course could be higher.

The information used to identify occupations in demand is primarily sourced from Higher Education and Skills Group (HESG) in the Department of Education and Training (DET), the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) and Deloitte Access Economics.
