A key area of the national Vocational and Education Training (VET) system is the Apprenticeship and Traineeship program. Apprenticeships and Traineeships give Tasmanians the opportunity to gain nationally recognised qualifications and practical work experience. In recent years the number of occupations covered by an apprenticeship or traineeship has greatly expanded.

In recognition of the costs incurred in relation to apprenticeships and traineeships, there is financial assistance available to both employers and apprentices/trainees. Both the Tasmanian Government and Commonwealth Government offer financial assistance to employers. There is also assistance to apprentices and trainees who incur significant travel and accommodation costs in attending training that takes place away from their usual place of work (allowances).
