Our Careers Services Include

Australian School Based Apprenticeship (ASBA)

Australian Apprenticeships combine practical work with structured learning and lead to a nationally recognised qualification. They provide Australian Apprentices with the necessary job experience to get the career they want. Australian Apprenticeships are available in over 500 occupations in an increasing range of industries. Some Australian Apprenticeships can be started while still at school and form part of a student's Year 12 Certificate.

An Australian School-based Apprenticeship (ASBA) involves the employment of a young person who is undertaking a traineeship part-time while still attending school or college and enrolled in a program leading to a senior secondary certificate.

Work Experience (WEX)

Work Experience (WEX) is an integral part of offering students an opportunity to explore a wide range of employment opportunities and have a taste of different work environments before they leave College.

Students can participate, a number of times, in WEX during their 2 years of college. WEX allows students to experience workplace expectations and requirements and is used to help students partner with a suitable employer before they start an ASBA.

Partnerships with Other Registered Training Organisations (RTO)

These courses enhance the students Year 12 certificate by offering extension units that may represent part of a nationally recognised qualification.
