Gap Year in the ADF

The year after high school is usually a bit of a lost one but the ADF is offering a more constructive option.

ADF Gap Year applications for 2019 have opened and present an opportunity for school leavers to try out a career in Navy, Army or Air Force to get a feel for a military life without committing for a longer period.

Through an ADF Gap Year they'll:

  • Gain valuable skills and work experience
  • Enjoy a great salary package plus free healthcare
  • Live a varied, active and healthy lifestyle
  • Make friends with like-minded people
  • Get the opportunity to see more of Australia
