Course Details

This course is for people who have or are seeking an apprenticeship in the jewellery trade. It provides off-the-job training in a wide range of jewellery skills. Design and creativity is emphasised in order to meet the changing needs of society from national identity and cultural trends, to personal adornment and aesthetics, socio-economic factors and tourism.

You will design and manufacture individual pieces of jewellery using a wide range of materials, techniques and procedures relevant to work in the industry.

Practical skills and operating techniques are emphasised as well as diagnostic procedures and the technical analysis and correction of faults typically found in the trade.

There are equipment and material costs involved in doing this course. Contact your campus for more information.

This course is superseded by MEM30803. You can still enrol in this course, and you will be contacted if you need to transition into the next version when it is available.
