The Public Sector School-based Traineeship Program is now open and taking applications for 2022.

Two things are happening right now:

  • Agencies are invited to submit a request to employ Year 11 students as school‑based trainees in 2022-23.
  • Students across Western Australia who will be in Year 11 next year are invited to apply for the 18‑month traineeship starting in February 2022.

This program is a fantastic opportunity for young people to build their skills and kick start their professional careers – and for agencies to employ young people with innovative ideas, skills and knowledge.

The public sector is working to increase the representation of young people in its workforce, and build a strong, diverse and capable workforce for now and the future.

We want young people with innovative ideas, skills and knowledge to come and work for us.

Full details are available at School Based Traineeship Program.
