Get a headstart in your career with Australian School-Based Apprenticeships and Traineeships.
A school-based apprenticeship or traineeship is generally for students in Years 10, 11 or 12. You can work as a paid employee and obtain a recognised qualification, all while you're still at school.
Whether you want to enter the workforce right after school or go on to Uni, a school-based apprenticeship or traineeship allows you to develop the skills and knowledge employers and tertiary institutions are looking for. There are more than 600 qualifications that you can do through a school-based apprenticeship or traineeship so you’re bound to find one that would suit your needs and interests.
A school-based apprenticeship or traineeship can broaden your horizons and gives you a headstart before you have even finished school. To do a school-based apprenticeship or traineeship you still need to be at school and you'll need to work one day a week.

- Obtain a pathway from school to work.

- Earn an income while you learn.
