Skillset School2Trade – School Based Apprenticeships and Traineeships

School-based Apprenticeships and Traineeships (SBATs) are more than just part-time jobs, they’re a great way to set young people up for a career whilst they complete their HSC.

School-based apprenticeships are available to Year 10, 11 and 12 high school students across Central West and Far West Orana regions of NSW. They allow students to complete an apprenticeship or traineeship whilst at high school. A School-based apprenticeship combines paid work, training and school; as well as gaining credit towards their HSC.
