Out of Trade Register

Out of Trade Register

The Out-of-Trade Register has been created by Skills Tasmania to provide opportunities for prospective apprentices and trainees to find employment with employers seeking staff to take up an apprenticeship or traineeship with their business.

Employers may be seeking out-of-trade apprentices and trainees who have been cancelled often because of lack of work but already have existing trade skills and work experience in the industry.

Employers may also be seeking people who have completed a pre-apprenticeship course through TAFE or a Vet in Schools program through college and therefore have shown an aptitude for the industry and have developed skills for the particular trade or vocation.

If you are looking for an apprenticeship or traineeship and meet any of the above categories please register your details to allow employers to contact you.

Once your details have been registered, they will be accessible to several potential employers in your chosen industry area.

The Out of Trade register is not a guarantee of employment; however it provides employers and potential apprentices and trainees with a greater opportunity to reach each other. 

Important Points to Note:

  • Your details will be gathered in accordance with the Personal Information Protection Policy. More information on this policy can be accessed at
  • Your information will only be accessed by potential employers who have signed a confidentiality agreement with Skills Tasmania to maintain the privacy of your personal information. It will not be accessed by or circulated to any other third party. 
  • The Out of Trade register is not a guarantee of employment, and employers will contact you directly via the details you have provided on the register, if they wish to discuss potential employment opportunities with you. 
  • Your details will remain on the register for a period of 6 months from the date of registration, after which they will be removed. If you are successful in obtaining employment after registering your details on the Out of Trade register, please advise Skills Tasmania so that your details can be removed from the register. This will help us to maintain the most up to date information we provide to employers.
