Aboriginal School Based Training

Aboriginal School Based Training (ASBT) provides opportunities for Aboriginal students in years 10 – 12 to gain a VET qualification. Students learn about the world of work, workplace expectations, explore careers and training areas, as well as undertake real or simulated work projects. The training is specifically designed to be engaging and encourages students to go into further training, a traineeship or employment. Schools need to apply for placements under ASBT through their school sector representative.

School based traineeships/apprenticeships

NR TAFE offers programs whereby students can start as a trainee or apprentice while still at school. School Based Apprenticeships and Traineeships are paid employment-based training arrangements formalised in a National Training Contract made between the employer and the student (and guardian). School Based Apprenticeships or Traineeships are available as part of the VET delivered to secondary schools program.

Students will undertake a variety of study at school, training with NR TAFE and will be contracted to work and train with an employer. This gives students the chance to complete the requirements of a nationally recognised qualification, while still graduating from school with their WACE.

Students undertaking a School Based Traineeship or Apprenticeship under the VET delivered to schools program with NR TAFE are exempt from tuition, resource and enrolment fees. Depending on the qualification, students may be required to purchase personal protective equipment and/or text books.

It is vital for the success of a school based trainee or apprentice (SBA/T) to ensure that the student is well matched to the employment based training opportunity. Students need to consider what their interests, aspirations and abilities are, and to share these with their guardians and school. These should be then matched to the employer’s capacity to provide work based training that is complementary and appropriate to those interests, aspirations and ability, as well as to the requirements of the SBA/T qualification.

Students or the school may approach an employer to discuss the possibility of setting up a SBA/T, or alternatively a Group Training Organisation may be utilised to help find an employer. There are many stakeholders involved in a SBA/T, including the student, their guardians, the school, the employer and the RTO (TAFE). Please refer to the Department of Workforce Training and Development (DTWD) website(opens in a new tab) for more information on SBA/Ts.

Pre-Apprenticeships in School (PAIS) is made up of Certificate II programs that have been nominated by Western Australian training councils as valid pathways from school to related apprenticeships. Students attend school, train at TAFE and are linked to an employer for work placement or undertake simulated work placement. Students must complete a work placement as nominated in the preapprenticeship program.
