Traineeships and graduates (Jobs4Youth)

Traineeships are offered through the Jobs4Youth 2017 initiative.

Trainees undertake vocational training through a Registered Training Organisation, e.g. TAFE and practical work experience in a government department such as SA Police.

Upon the successful completion of a traineeship, the department seeks to offer ongoing employment where possible. Alternatively assistance is given to find employment elsewhere.

Traineeships are open to people between the ages of 17-24 (and in some selected circumstances up to the age of 30) who live in South Australia and have:

  • completed Year 11 or SACE Stage 1 (a small number of traineeships only require completion of Year 10)

or

  • graduated from or are undertaking vocational training with a Registered Training Provider e.g. TAFE.

Young people between the ages of 17-28 (inclusive) who live in South Australia and have met the minimum level of schooling identified above are also encouraged to apply if they:

  • are Aboriginal / Torres Strait Islanders
