Steps to success
There are many ways to reach your goal.
HIA can help you build your future in many ways. Sometimes it's as simple as staying with the same employer you already have. Other times, you might
wish to move on. No matter what option you choose, there are always ways to achieve your desired goals.
If you have completed your apprenticeship and your host or employer is willing to keep you on,
you can become a full-time or part-time employee. On completion of your apprenticeship or traineeship,
your wages will need to change to the appropriate rate for qualified workers in your occupation.
Getting a job with another employer
You can use the skills you have acquired through your apprenticeship or traineeship to get a job with another employer.
Your training record, Apprentice Experience Register, log book and the qualification you obtained through completing your
apprenticeship or traineeship can be used as evidence of your skills and knowledge when applying for jobs.
Starting your own business
On completion of an apprenticeship, some qualified tradespersons choose to set up their own business and work for themselves.
It is important to be aware of your legal, regulatory and financial obligations when starting a business. It is a good idea
to get specialist advice and training in the day-to-day operations of a business first; including record keeping, sales and
marketing and managing staff.
