School Based Apprenticeships (S.B.A.T.’s) are an Australian Government incentive that enables secondary students to complete a Senior School Certificate while undertaking part time paid employment and completing a nationally recognised qualification.

The student must be 15 years of age or over and be a permanent resident of Australia.

Students wishing to undertake a School Based Apprenticeship have to secure an employer, willing to participate in the program. The College does occasionally receive offers of S.B.A.T’s in a variety of industries and we are asked to find suitable students to fill these places.

Examples of School Based Apprenticeships available are:
