At ACU an entry-level employment opportunity is an option for someone right out of school, or a person who wants to work for ACU that does not have much working experience or education. ACU utilises traineeships and cadetships as a form of entry-level employment.
What Is A Traineeship?
Traineeships are a way to study for a nationally recognised qualification such as a certificate or a diploma while working in a job. Traineeships can be full-time, part-time or school-based and offer benefits which include:
The ability to work and earn money while you’re getting your qualification
A nationally recognised qualification on completion of training
A mix of classroom or workshop learning (off-job) and practical (on-job) learning
Real life experience in the workplace.
Traineeships allow ACU to engage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people at the entry-level of employment while assisting to provide the necessary skills to pursue a valuable career.
Staff in a traineeship will:
Be provided with a full range of work experiences required to develop the skills and knowledge needed on the job.
Have a manager or supervisor who will provide for on-the-job assessment processes and work experience to ensure progress in the traineeship is assured.
Have access to on- and off-the-job training in accordance with the traineeship.
