School Based Apprenticeships and Traineeships

The School Based Apprenticeship and Traineeship program for secondary school students is open to students 15 years of age or over who are permanent residents of Australia. The program involves the students undertaking their VCE / VCAL certificate as well as being employed and trained under the following arrangements:

  • VCE/VCAL studies selected by student
  • A training agreement registered with the Office of Training and Tertiary Education (OTTE)
  • A negotiated training program leading to a nationally recognised qualification
  • Paid work under some form of industrial agreement that endorses Part-time Apprenticeships, such as a Federal Industrial Award, Australian Workplace Agreement (AWA) or Certified Agreement (CA)

School Based Apprenticeship and Traineeship programs generally provide the same contribution to the VCE as their related VET in the VCE programs.
