School-based traineeships are employment-based pathways towards a qualification for secondary school students (Years 10 , 11 and 12), allowing the trainee the opportunity to gain a genuine employment experience.
The student will be working towards their secondary schooling for their Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE) and/or Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) while also being employed.
Employers may also be entitled to access federal funding for taking on a school based trainee.
