What is a School-Based Apprenticeship?
And how does it work?
A school-based apprenticeship is an arrangement that allows high-school students (usually those in Years 11 and 12) to receive training and work as paid employees while studying their senior certificate. School-based apprenticeships are typically facilitated through employment and a registered training organisation.
Any employment and training arrangements must influence the student’s school timetable for the program to be considered school based.
Major Training’s school-based apprenticeships involve a detailed training plan developed in conjunction with the school. Upon successful completion of a school-based apprenticeship, students will be awarded nationally recognised Statement of Attainments and Certificates.

School-based apprenticeships enable students to gain practical work experience and industry-specific skills while completing their high school education, offering a valuable blend of classroom learning and on-the-job training.
School-based apprenticeships usually take from one to eight years to complete, depending on the type of qualification and training schedule undertaken by the student. It’s possible for students to finish their qualification as a school-based trainee at the same time they graduate high school, and this is dependent on the working days provided to them throughout the year. School-based apprentices can only complete 33% of their qualification while at school unless special exemption is provided by the State Government.

School-based apprenticeships offer a range of benefits, including:
- A nationally recognised qualification upon successful completion of the course
- Foundational skillsets required for future employment
- Practical learning opportunities through work experience
- Credit toward a high-school certificate, further vocational education, or university qualifications
- Assistance with transitioning from high school to paid employment.
Before enrolling in a school-based apprenticeship, it’s important to consider your career choices carefully. Once you’ve chosen a career path, you can speak with your teachers or a training provider about your training and study options.
In Queensland, some qualifications are funded by the VET investment budget User Choice Program. While many programs are fully funded, eligibility criteria applies.
