Public Sector Trainee Program


New trainee positions are being created across the government to rejuvenate the sector and promote employment opportunities in South Australia.

Trainees will:

  • receive on the job training in a supportive environment
  • undertake a Certificate III, in a relevant discipline
  • build valuable professional networks

A traineeship within the South Australian Public Sector allows you to learn in a supportive work environment. You'll be paid to undertake a mixture of study and on-the-job training, culminating in a nationally-recognised vocational qualification.

A trainee's qualification is decided by an agency based on workforce requirements and will be specified in each job advertisement.
