A school based traineeship allows senior secondary students to start a traineeship while also completing the Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE). Under these arrangements the student is both a full-time student and a part-time employee with the same employment and training responsibilities as other trainees.
Students are an employee so they are paid for the time they are in the workplace.

Schools Based Apprenticeships allow students to start an apprenticeship while still at school. Under these arrangements the student is both a full-time student and a part-time employee. After the student leaves school they continue the apprenticeship on a full-time or part-time basis.
Students are an employee so they are paid for the time they are in the workplace. Every week students are usually 3 days at school, one day in the workplace and one day at training.

The ApprentiCentre is a dedicated operation within the Department of Training and Workforce Development that provides support, information and advice to employers, apprentices and trainees and parents on matters relating to apprenticeships and traineeships.
For further information about participating in any of these programs speak to the VET Coordinator at your school.
