While still at school, you can begin an apprenticeship or traineeship and get a head start in your career!
School-based apprenticeships and traineeships allow high school students, generally in Years 10, 11 or 12, to work for an employer and train towards a recognised qualification, while still completing their secondary schooling.
Upon approval from your school, your employment and training forms part of your normal school timetable. As a general guide, you work a minimum of 7.5 hours a week, being either a full day or split shifts.
A school based apprenticeship or traineeship can help you open doors to full time work, a trade career, university, TAFE or other career pathways.
