As a co-educational college, the AITC has over 600 apprenticeships and traineeships on offer. Students commence their school based apprenticeships at the college. The Australian Industry Trade College supports your young person’s search for a suitable apprenticeship by employing employment consultants whose role it is to liaise with employers and to coach and mentor your son or daughter in a paid apprenticeship in industry.

Feedback from our industry partners attests to the positive learning culture of the college as demonstrated by the many testimonials from our employers. Starting their school based apprenticeships at the AITC gives students an early start to a productive trade career in industry.
