Apprenticeships are high quality, work-based training programs for young people who want to develop their prospects and a career. 

When you decide to take up an Apprenticeship, you will:

  • earn real wages
  • gain new qualifications
  • gain new knowledge and key skills

Apprenticeships are open to anyone living in Australia, not taking part in full-time education. Entry requirements are flexible because apprenticeships aren't just based on academic achievement.

Practical skills count and your interest in the area of work you’ve chosen and Employers value keenness to work and keenness to learn.
Our qualifications demonstrate skills and competence - the foundations of a successful career.

"Being part of a brand like Volvo is an incredible thing and there are so many amazing things that his brand has offered me. One such thing is the opportunity to complete my training at Vantage Automotive.

Training at Vantage has some awesome benefits such as meeting new people, learning about Volvos and using top of the line equipment. The facilities not only provide a great place to learn, but also provide everything that is needed to achieve what I set out to do".

"The trainers have unlimited amounts of knowledge about the brand and are always there when you need them. They are not just educators, they are great guys I consider as friends.

Throughout the time spent learning at Vantage, there have been some great experiences, most of which have been in the class room or out in the workshop while we train. The knowledge I have been given while at Vantage is priceless and has improved not only my skills as a technician, but myself as well".
