Welcome to VACC Automotive Apprenticeships, the experts in automotive apprenticeships and traineeships.

VACC currently employs over 500 apprentices and trainees working within the automotive industry across Victoria and Tasmania. Since the beginning of the VACC Automotive Apprenticeships in 1983 over 2500 people have qualified through the scheme.

VACC Automotive Apprenticeships provides a smooth pathway for individuals opting to enter the workforce within the automotive sector, commencing as early as Year 10. We recruit the most suitable candidates and then place them with matching host employers for their on-the-job training, pay for the necessary medical examination, conduct an induction program, and place them on the VACC payroll. We make a commitment to ensure the security of continuing employment throughout their training period.

We are in it for the long haul, so it does not end there. Apprentices and trainees employed by VACC have access to our trade-qualified Field Managers who will monitor their performance as well as provide mentoring, coaching, intervening in disputes, and rotating workplaces of the apprentices and trainees when necessary. By regularly visiting the apprentices in the workplace to provide ongoing support, while engaging with business owners and staff we ensure everything runs smoothly.

In addition, supplementary training is provided to all apprentices throughout their apprenticeship that provides additional skills and knowledge making them stand out in the industry.

As the only industry peak body employer of apprentices and trainees, with a great wealth of knowledge and experience within the automotive industry, in choosing VACC Automotive Apprenticeships – you know you’ll be ‘in good hands’.
