Work Experience (WEX)

Australian School Based Apprenticeships (ASBA)

An Australian School Based Apprenticeship (ASBA) involves the employment of a young person who is undertaking a traineeship part-time while still attending college and who is enrolled in a program leading to a senior secondary certificate. This program provides students with an excellent opportunity to try an occupation that may be of interest to them. The range of industry areas that offer ASBA traineeships is extensive.

If students are interested in undertaking an ASBA, contact the Vocational Education/ASBA coordinator to discuss the possibility of commencing a traineeship. Students do not need to have an employer identified as the college can assist students to find a suitable employer. Students will receive credit towards the Year 12 Certificate.
