Apprenticeship & Traineeship

The Gordon’s Apprenticeships and Traineeships are a great way to combine employment and training, and lead to a nationally recognised qualification.

An apprenticeship offers the following cutting-edge advantages:

  • A head start in your chosen career
  • Paid work and structured training that can be on-the-job, off-the-job or a combination of both
  • Recognise existing skills and prior experience and hence reduce formal training time
  • Available part-time or full-time
  • Can also be combined with school education
  • Nationally recognised qualifications and skills
  • Provide a pathway from school to work.

The Gordon works with employers, apprentices and trainees to create an Individual Training Plan that is customized as required.
