The School-based Apprenticeship & Traineeship program is aimed at Year 11 students on a General Pathway as the program takes 18 months to complete. The SBA/T program allows students to attend school whilst working and studying as a trainee. SBA/T students sign a training contract stating that they will work towards completing a VET qualification, whilst being paid and getting relevant on the job training from the employer for the duration of the contract. Students attend the workplace one day a week for a minimum of 7.5 hours and attend school as usual for the rest of the week.
SBA/T program is designed for students who would like to work towards a specific career pathway. The student will select a traineeship, relevant to their career pathway, that leads towards further studies, employment or an apprenticeship/traineeship once they complete Year 12. Students, in some circumstances, can complete a School-based Apprenticeship which allows them to commence an apprenticeship in their trade of choice whilst still at school on a one-day a week, part-time basis. The student will continue their apprenticeship in a full-time capacity upon leaving school.
