School-based apprenticeships and traineeships (SATs) provide an opportunity for young people (usually in Years 11 and 12) to participate in training and work as paid employees while completing senior schooling.
Information on relevant legislation, processes for applying for certain subsidies and support funding for SATs can be accessed from the Education Queensland policy, School-based Apprenticeships and Traineeships .
Details of funding for VET in schools, including SATs can be accessed from the Grants and Allowances website.
Whilst SATs are primarily designed for students in Years 11 and 12, students enrolled in Year 10 may also choose to participate in a SAT pathway. In exceptional circumstances, students in Years 8 and 9 may be considered eligible on a case by case basis approved by the regional training office .
Each party to a school-based apprenticeship or traineeship (i.e. student, parent/carer, school, employer and supervising registered training organisation) has specific responsibilities and obligations .
This includes the responsibility of the Supervising Registered Training Organisation (SRTO) to ensure an Education, Training and Employment Schedule is completed by all parties prior to submitting the student's training contract to the department for registration.
To inform the department of any changes to a student's personal or school details (e.g. change of surname, change of school), complete a Minor Amendment of Registered Training Contract (new window) and fax to your local DETE office .
