For employers,

The Trade Schools for the Future program is a partnership between Government, schools, TAFE and other vocational education providers and employers, working together to provide a better future for our children and the State. Through the North East Adelaide Trade School for the Future you can provide an apprenticeship opportunity for a young person who is keen to learn about and work in your industry. By talking to our experienced ‘School to Work’ Apprenticeship Broker you can find a student who is studying subjects related to your industry needs. And by taking on a school-based apprentice you can address your skills needs from the moment the student starts work.

After the students complete their schooling, you can expect motivated, trained and work-ready employees who know your business and are keen to stay in the industry. This may reduce your recruitment costs, saving you valuable training time and increasing the likelihood that productive young workers will quickly repay your investment in them.

Talk with our ‘School to Work’ Apprenticeship Broker about the specific educational needs of young people starting in your industry so that your future employees are better prepared to meet your business needs.

If you are interested in making this investment in your business and being an active supporter of the Trade Schools for the Future program, please contact the ‘School to Work’ Apprenticeships Broker.

For Parents/Caregivers,

Secondary students will be enrolled at their local school while they access specialist courses in the industry area they select through North East Adelaide Trade School for the Future.

The ‘School to Work’ Apprenticeship Broker also makes sure that contracts of training for young people are fair and reasonable for everyone involved. They work to increase the number of apprenticeships and skilled job opportunities for all trade school students.
