Trainees and Apprentices

Western Downs Regional Council provides a number of new traineeship and apprenticeship opportunities throughout the year.

Our traineeship and apprenticeship programs enable you to learn valuable skills, while still earning a wage.

At the end of the program, you will have gained a nationally recognised qualification.

Vacancies for traineeships and apprenticeships are advertised as they arise.

WDRC Apprentice and Trainee Industry Initiative

Council is committed to ensure our local apprentices and trainees are provided with the best start in their career.  The Apprentice and Trainee Industry Initiative provides local businesses the opportunity to place an apprentice or trainee in their business for a period of up to 8 weeks to gain additional skills and insights into career pathways. During the placement period, Council will continue to pay wages and cover public liability of the apprentice or trainee.

There has never been a better time to take on an apprentice or trainee by investing time in developing the skills of our future generations and building stronger relationships with Council.
