    The Far North is being targeted in a campaign to train 1000 adult apprentices to work in the mining and energy sectors.
    These people could be qualified in 18 months.
    National Apprenticeships Program Director Alan Sparks says "we are looking for people in Cairns who have skills but no formal qualifications" "for example there are probably taxi drivers with the skills and experience we require.
    The ideal candidate would be aged between 25 - 45 years old. The recruiting process and training will be free of charge.

    Hi there,

    Really interested in a carpentry apprenticeship, I have enough skill and experience. Would you happen to know if this would provide a visa as I'm currently on a sponsorship 457 visa which expires in July.

    Many thanks,

    This thread is from October last year, I would imagine those positions have all been filled now. However I have never heard of anyone getting a visa through an apprenticeship. They are normally for young Australian to help train them up to a skilled position. You could always follow the link and ask if it was possible as you are already in Australia.
