Business traineeship


In 2021, the NSW Government kicked off their Infrastructure Traineeship Programs, which blends TAFE NSW studies with a hands on experience for traineeships. A business traineeship is one of the fields where the NSW Government has included in their program, where you will study 1 day per week with TAFE NSW towards a BSB40120 Certificate IV in Business.
