ANU Indigenous Trainee and Apprentice Program

The ANU Indigenous Traineeship Program has been in operation since 2011, and the Apprentice program since 2019.  Since 2017 the program has welcomed 34 trainees and one apprentice who have worked across all Colleges, and a number of Service Divisions.

The University runs the ANU Indigenous Trainee and Apprentice Program in partnership with the Australian Training Company (ATC), who provides services to local areas to recruit and provide ongoing support for trainees and administer traineeships.

The Australian Government announced the Boosting Apprenticeship Commencements wage subsidy to support employers to take on new apprentices and trainees. For further information see the Related Links.
