Our Apprentice Program is an educational and training program designed to provide you with the skills and knowledge needed for the specific discipline along which you are keen to develop competencies. We provide you with paid work experience so that you earn while you learn.
Each apprentice will be on the program for a one-year period, at the successful completion of which the apprentice will be awarded a completion certificate.

To further enhance the benefits of the program, for those apprentices who successfully complete the one-year, an opportunity to complete a second year as an apprentice may be offered.

Alternatively, the apprentice may also be offered permanent employment with Dhiraagu subject to availability and performance of the apprentice during the program.

At the end of this program, you will be equipped with skills such as communication, planning and organizing, problem-solving and decision making, customer care, occupational health and safety, which are considered important across different disciplines. You will be more competent.

We help you seek your desired job by providing you with the necessary skills to prepare for employment interviews, researching jobs / vacancies, and developing effective CVs.

With the evolving changes in the corporate landscape over the years, the program has been modified to support the surge in demand for trained professionals in the industry. Therefore, this year, we are extending the opportunity for Graduate Apprentices who are seeking to specialize in the Information Technology field.

Each Graduate apprentice will be on the program for a two year’s period, at the successful completion of which the Graduate apprentice will be awarded a completion certificate. Alternatively, the graduate apprentice may also be offered permanent employment with Dhiraagu subject to availability and performance of the graduate apprentice during the program.
