School based apprenticeships and traineeships (SATs) allow high school students to work in paid employment and train towards a recognised qualification, while completing their secondary schooling.
TAFE Queensland Gold Coast can help you secure work placement opportunities, which could lead to a school-based apprenticeship or traineeship. Contact your School Careers Office for further information on how to apply.
For general Apprenticeship & Traineeship information please visit the Australian Apprenticeships website.
"My apprenticeship has motivated me to keep training in the future. I recommend this to people every day and would advise any student at High School who maybe doesn't feel like they fit in there to pursue a traineeship or apprenticeship in Construction and learn these skills while finishing Grade 12. It is the best decision my family and I have ever made."
