School Based Apprenticeships (SBA) and School Based Traineeships (SBT) combine school, TAFE and paid work and are a great way to set you up for a career while you are completing the HSC.
A School Based Apprenticeship or School Based Traineeship provides you with an opportunity to:
• Combine HSC studies with vocational training within a supportive school environment
• Gain valuable work skills and experience and get a head start in your career
• Earn while you learn
• Obtain a nationally recognised vocational qualification at a Certificate II or Certificate III level
• Pursue a pathway to further studies or gain credit towards more study
School Based Apprentices will complete stage 1 of an apprenticeship and continue employment after the HSC. School Based Trainees will be eligible to receive a TAFE qualification at the completion of studies.
How does it fit in with my HSC?
All School Based Apprentices and School Based Trainees study HSC Vocational Courses. These courses generally make up at least 4 units of the 22 units required for the HSC. Additional HSC unit credit may be awarded depending on the qualification.
