A career in the sport and recreation industry can be exciting, and a traineeship is great way to get started in the industry by learning and training on the job while also getting paid!

If ever there was a diverse, challenging and rewarding industry, sport and recreation would be near the top of the list. There are many opportunities to work in a diverse range of environments and with a number of different people.

The sector offers a range of pathways and careers that impact positively on people's lives by contributing to their health and wellbeing, in addition to building stronger, happier, healthier and safer communities. Employment is often part time, casual or seasonal and isn't your typical nine-to-five office job.

A traineeship is a contractual agreement between a trainee, their school (for school-based traineeships), an employer, an RTO, and the Apprenticeship Office.
