About school-based apprenticeships and traineeships

As a school-based apprentice or trainee, you can:

  • work for an employer (and get paid!)
  • train towards a nationally recognised qualification
  • complete your secondary school studies.

You can combine a school-based apprenticeship or traineeship with studying for your Queensland Certificate of Education and/or Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR). Your training can also contribute towards your ATAR.

Please note: You and your employer must seek permission and support from your school before starting.
