An Australian school based apprenticeship (ASBA) allows students to start working on an apprenticeship or traineeship from year 10.
Students working on an ASBA can:
- commence an apprenticeship while at school in year 10, 11 or 12
- combine paid employment and structured work-related training within the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE)
- negotiate a flexible personalised SACE program within our school which allows for employment and training in and outside of school hours
- count study and placements related to vocational education training (VET) toward their SACE
- work towards a nationally recognised VET qualification through a registered training organisation (RTO)
- continue their apprenticeship or traineeship after they have left school, either part-time or full-time.
