BECOMING A TRAINEE
Landscaping is a rich and rewarding career where no two days are the same, and you get to make the most of the beautiful outdoors. And let's be honest… the grass will be greener on your side!
Getting into the great outdoors, getting your hands dirty, working hard and keeping fit are all part of being a landscaper. Let alone knowing about plants and designing and creating natural or man-made masterpieces. So why not get paid to learn?
Undertaking an apprenticeship or traineeship allows you to learn real skills in the workplace, become qualified in a trade or vocation and be paid a wage while you're learning. You'll enter into a training contract with an employer and a training provider that will allow you to combine hands-on training in the workplace with off-job study in a classroom or workshop.
When you take on a Traineeship, you'll:
I want to be a Trainee - What Next?
The Apprenticeship Network Provider Centre will come to your workplace, and you will complete a Training Agreement. You will agree to work for the Employer as a Trainee, and the Employer agrees to train you and register you with a Registered Training Organisation (RTO).
Once this agreement has been completed and signed, the RTO will receive all of you and your employers' details so they can contact your Employer to get you enrolled with an RTO.
The RTO will contact you to complete a Basic English and Maths assessment. The assessment helps the RTO identify areas where you may need additional support to help you achieve your goals.
The RTO will then enrol you in the qualification and provide to you your Training Plan, and commence training.
