School-Based Apprenticeships & Traineeships

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. Your school will work with you, your parents, your employer and your training provider to make sure your apprenticeship is a success.

With a school-based apprenticeship or traineeship you will:

  • Obtain a pathway from school to work.
  • Gain the edge you need to get started in your career.
  • Obtain real world skills and knowledge.
  • Combine practical paid work with training.
  • Earn an income while you learn.
  • Build your confidence and communication skills.
  • Take a stepping stone to higher education.
  • End up with a nationally recognised qualification.
  • Achieve credits towards your Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE).
