School-based apprenticeships and traineeships (SATs) provide an opportunity for students in Years 10, 11 and 12 to undertake employment-based training while continuing full-time enrolment in a school program and studying towards a Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE).
In exceptional circumstances, students in other years may be considered eligible. For further information refer to business cases for students outside Years 10, 11 and 12 on the Apprenticeships Info website or the Guide to school-based apprenticeships and traineeships .
Information on relevant legislation, processes for applying for certain subsidies and support funding for SATs can be accessed from the Education Queensland policy, School-based apprenticeships and traineeships .
Details of funding for VET in schools, including SATs can be accessed from the VET in Schools website.
Each party to a school-based apprenticeship or traineeship (i.e. student, parent/carer, school, employer and supervising registered training organisation) has specific responsibilities and obligations .
All parties must negotiate and agree to a schedule of school studies, training and employment for the apprentice or trainee, and endorsement will come from the school principal by signing either an Education, Training and Employment Schedule (ETES form) and/or a school notification form .
If students wish to update their personal details, this can be changed online by accessing the Minor Amendment form on the Apprenticeships Info website.
