New AAPathways website demonstration sessions

The Australian Apprenticeships and Traineeships Information Service is launching a new AAPathways website on Thursday 31 August 2017. The new website is designed to make finding information and resources on Australian apprenticeships even easier than before.

They have scheduled free, interactive face to face sessions to demonstrate the improvements and functionalities of the new website to be run on Tuesday 19 September in Perth.

Areas of the website that will be reviewed at these sessions are:
• Site search
• Job and training descriptions
• Field Officer brief
• Industry information pages

If you’d like to attend this event, register online at the AAPathways Eventbrite page.

Applications are open now until 31 October 2016 for scholarships of up to $3000 for women who are planning to take up training in non-traditional industries.

What can I use the scholarship for?

These scholarships can be applied to assist with the costs of:

  • student fees;
  • learning resources;
  • mentoring and coaching;
  • tools and equipment; accommodation and transport; and
  • childcare fees.

Who can apply?

The scholarships must be used for commencing training in 2017, in one of the 180 qualifications listed. If you are intending to do an apprenticeship or traineeship qualification, you will need to secure an offer of an apprenticeship or traineeship with an employer.

These scholarships are available to women in Western Australia who are not already receiving funding from another scholarship and have already left school by 1 January 2017.
