APA knows the transition to your first job, a new company or a new industry can be daunting. That's why we’ve created a multiweek induction program to make this transition as smooth as possible. During this induction, you’ll:
- Learn about APA and its role in the Australian and international energy infrastructure industries.
- Meet your team, your support network and the wider APA community.
- Undertake various induction training courses, including safety, environment, wellbeing, internal systems and procedures, essential soft skills and more.
- Learn about your apprenticeship training plan, meet your trainers and set some study goals with your support network.
Classroom and on-the-job training
Most of your learning and skills development will happen on the job, under the guidaince of experienced tradespeople and mentors. A portion of your learning will be done in the classroom at an approved trade school or TAFE.
Career paths and skills development
If you’re successful in gaining an apprenticeship position at APA, it means we want you on the team, even after your apprenticeship is over.
You will have regular performance reviews to help you progress during your apprenticeship, and once it has been successfully completed, there will be further development opportunities. You may choose to stay in the trade or continue upskilling by moving to other areas in the business, such as engineering, operations or management roles.
Your support network
Your support network is here to help you succeed. We want you to have an enjoyable work and study life, learn as much as possible and successfully complete your apprenticeship to ultimately become a highly-valued member of the APA team.
Your support network will include mentors, supervisors, your colleagues, a program coordinator and classroom trainers.
