The Company

KFC is the world’s most popular chicken restaurant chain, specializing in our famous Original Recipe® fried chicken. It all started with one cook who created a finger lickin’ good recipe more than 75 years ago, a list of secret herbs and spices scratched out on the back of the door to his kitchen. That cook was Colonel Harland Sanders, of course, and today we still follow his formula for success, with real cooks breading and freshly preparing our delicious chicken by hand. Our aim is to put a smile on people’s faces around the world and give every customer a special experience on each occasion. Our vision is that our jobs will be the best in the world for those committed to serving great food and looking after customers better than anyone else.

KFC offers Nationally Accredited Training with such qualifications including the Certificate II Retail Services, Certificate III Retail and Certificate III Hospitality.  Dependant on your location, different options are available to you.

How do school based traineeships work?

School based traineeships involve a mix of studying at high school, training and working.  All of these things will become part of your school timetable.  You will continue to go to school to earn your Certificate of Education.  A school based traineeship must have an impact on your school timetable, which means some of your training and work must take place during school hours.

The qualification or competencies you complete during your school based traineeship can be recorded on your Certificate of Education and will be recognised wherever you go in Australia.

Why choose a school based traineeship?

  • Get a head start on your career while still at school
  • Obtain experience in the workplace before you leave school
  • Earn money for the time you spend working
  • Work towards achieving a nationally recognised qualification
  • Assist in the transition from school to work
  • Put you a step ahead of the competition when you apply for jobs
  • Give you confidence to continue in the workplace or when engaging in further study

School support

Schools play an important role in the success of a school based traineeship.  We encourage schools to support the progress of their students and appreciate their guidance in altering a student’s timetable to support the students chosen learning pathway.

KFC is a place where good things happen as soon as you walk through the door.

KFC is committed to creating a diverse and inclusive environment where everyone feels they belong. We are proud to be an equal opportunity employer, and as such, all applicants will receive equal consideration for employment for which they qualify.
