What is the expected workload?

As a trainee, you will work full time on-site at a host company including studies of three hours per week.

Like all vocational employment training, successful completion depends on demonstrating your competency at the work place. You will be required to complete a number of "units of competency" but you won't need to attend lectures or read a lot of theory that doesn't relate to your work and career.

You select the range of competencies (as per qualification requirements) you wish to attain and then learn and demonstrate these competencies in the workplace. The heart of the program is competency-based assessment. The emphasis is on giving you opportunities to demonstrate your competence. As a vocational "competency based" qualification, the focus is on your ability to apply your workplace knowledge to the issues raised in the study material, on the application of your practical work experience and problem solving.

How much does it cost?

We offer traineeship opportunities in Sydney metropolitan only at this stage.

All trainees, who are undertaking the traineeship for the first time, are eligible for a subsidised training under Smart and Skilled. You pay only a portion of the training cost. The NSW Government pays an average of 55% to 90% of the cost of each course.

At current pricing, the qualifications that support the traineeships offered by Budding Talents Recruitment costs between $1,000 and $2,000, which can be paid in instalments. The exact fee you pay depends largely on your eligibility and you can get an estimate of the fee for your relevant course at:

Upon successful application, we will arrange for interviews with the prospective host companies. If you are selected by the host company, we will assist you to sign-up under Australian Traineeship Program and ensure that you successfully complete it within 1-2 years.

You will be employed and paid trainee wages by Budding Talents Recruitment while you work for the host company. You will sign a traineeship agreement between you, Budding Talents Recruitment and the State Training Authority (STA) and complete your qualification at the chosen Registered Training Organisation, studying online or by attending flexible classroom lectures.

Please note that only short-listed applicants will be contacted for interview.
