School Based Apprenticeship

Giving students the opportunity to gain industry related experience

A School Based Apprenticeship (SBA) allows Australian school students to undertake part-time work and gain valuable hands-on experience, whilst still at school. SBA’s can undertake a traditional trade, or obtain a Certificate, Diploma or Advanced Diploma often leading to ongoing full time employment with the host business.
 
SBA’s will complete their industry experience within school hours, once the Individual’s timetable has been negotiated. Additional to school work, SBA’s will also need to complete compulsory training with their nominated Registered Training Provider (RTO) to obtain their qualification. 
 
Training may be on the job (workplace based) or off the job (needing to attend the RTO’s campus to undergo assessments.
