Give young people a head
start in a career
– while they are still at school

The challenge facing school leavers is that they are at a disadvantage to job seekers with work experience. But how do they gain experience or industry knowledge if no-one will give them a job or work experience?

It’s a Catch 22.

The answer is: Australian School-based Apprenticeships.

You can give a young person both experience and skills training while they are still at school. Australian School-based Apprenticeships provide students with the opportunity to commence vocational learning and part-time paid employment whilst still at school.

These AS-bAs, otherwise known as school-based traineeships or apprenticeships, enable students to obtain a nationally recognised qualification as well as points towards their senior certificate.

You can give them a head start on a career and you may be eligible for financial incentives.

Australian School-based Apprentices are considered by government to have Nominated Equity Group status
