Did you know you can start an Apprenticeship/Traineeship while still at school?
A School Based Apprenticeship/Traineeship (ASBA) allows you to start work in your chosen vocational pathway while you are still at school. You may complete this while still at school, or continue full-time or part-time when you leave school.
How you can work and still complete your SACE?
The qualification a student studies as part of their School Based Traineeship/Apprenticeship can provide credit towards their SACE.
This usually means they can adjust the number of subjects studied, freeing up more time to work during the week. We have students working 2 days per week in Year 11, and in Year 12 up to 4 days per week. (The days worked depend upon the student’s goals and employer’s situation.)
We have students who have completed an ASBA while at school and used that towards an ATAR score for a university pathway. Other students, when they leave school, continue in their Apprenticeship/Traineeship part-time or full-time. It very much depends on the students chosen pathway.
There are several hundred different Apprenticeships/Traineeships, in a wide range of industries, e.g. Building, Engineering and Automotive, Hospitality, Community Services Aged Care, Child and Disability, Transport and Office work - the list goes on.
We have students who have started a School Based Apprenticeship/Traineeship with the family business. OAC student William started a Plastering (Wall and Ceiling Lining Apprenticeship) with the family business “Monk Plasterboard” this year.
