School Based Opportunities
Australian School-based Apprenticeships & Traineeships
Australian Apprenticeships covers all apprenticeships and traineeships. They combine time at work with training and can be full-time, part-time or school-based.
Investing in training through an Australian Apprenticeship / Traineeship can provide your business with real benefits and contribute to your bottom line. You can, for example, vary the mix of training and working time (providing certain conditions are met). Employ an Australian Apprentice on a part time basis, and specify other terms and conditions which are appropriate to the needs of your business.
Australian School-based Apprenticeships are a great career option for students in Year 11 and Year 12. They have a number of features:
- The student can finish Years 11 and 12 while undertaking your apprenticeship.
- The student is paid a training wage or apprentice wage for the time they spend 'on-the-job' with the employer.
- The student is covered by a training contract, which links to an industrial award or agreement
