What is a traineeship?

A traineeship is a tried and tested pathway to a thriving career. Learners gain the knowledge from traditional study combined with practical experience on the job.

Under the fee free traineeships initiative, the NSW Department of Education will pay the student fee on behalf of eligible trainees who are undertaking an approved traineeship.

Free access to a thriving career

Gaining valuable qualifications, hands-on experience and earning a salary can all be achieved with a traineeship. With no student fee, eligible learners can get started with a career right away.

Approved training includes courses in early childhood education and aged care courses. These industries have excellent job prospects and offer a diverse range of rewarding career opportunities.


To be eligible you must be

  • a NSW trainee or NSW school-based trainee
  • is funded under the Smart and Skilled Program
  • must have commenced your training on or following 1 January, 2020. Each student has in total three fee free traineeships available to them.
