What is a School Based Traineeship?
Student and Parent Information
School based traineeships and apprenticeships (SATs) allow high school students to work for an employer, train towards a recognised qualification and complete their secondary school studies. The traineeships are available across a range of industries and provide students with increased future employment opportunities.
Completion of a SAT gives you valuable points towards your Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE). The number of points acquired will depend upon the type and level of certificate completed, but is always at least four points.
As well as obtaining a Certificate level qualification, School Based Traineeships can be used towards your ATAR score and increases your chances for entry into a Higher Education Course or University.
