What are traineeships?

Traineeships offer young Aboriginal people who are interested in pursuing a career within the community services sector the opportunity to work full time for 12 months in a specific program at VACCA, developing essential workplace skills whilst also undertaking a Certificate IV in Community Services.

Traineeships are set up in a way that enables Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander trainees to take the theory and skills they learn whilst they are studying and apply this knowledge to the work they are doing in the workplace. Further to this, trainees receive important Cultural mentorship, guidance and supervision as they progress within the workplace and through their study.
