School Based Traineeships and Apprenticeships (SATs)

School-based apprentices and trainees are able to study for their Senior Certificate and at the same time, undertake paid work and receive training as part of their apprenticeship or traineeship.
 
School-based traineeships may be completed during the two years of senior schooling, while apprenticeships continue after Year 12.
 
A full range of students are selecting this option as part of their senior years. Students who are OP eligible and planning for tertiary study; students with disabilities; and students who have clear career goals before leaving school are all finding school-based apprenticeships and traineeships have benefits for them.
