ADF GAP Year information

Due to a large demand for Gap Year placements in 2016, the ADF Gap Year program will now be made available for application up until March 27th

As per the original correspondence from Defence Head Quarters , Gap Year is a fantastic program for young Australians who have finished year 12 (or equivalent) and are aged between 17 years and 24 years old. 
This is such a great opportunity for candidates to experience military training and lifestyle whilst gaining new skills and pay over their Gap Year. 

Across the Navy, Army and Air Force, candidates will learn life skills and have on the job training that will be used throughout their journey at Gap Year and will be incredibly valuable, regardless of what career these candidates ultimately undertake. 
During Gap Year, the candidates will undergo basic recruit training and specific trade training, and will be immersed in the Navy, Army or Air Force lifestyle while continuing to learn on the job. Aside from learning valuable skills,
candidates will meet new friends and may even receive recognised qualifications to help progress your future career. 

To find out more information about the ADF Gap Year program please visit defencejobs.gov.au/gapyear and please ensure you are across the closing dates for 2016 as time is running out!
