School Based Traineeships

Nationally Accredited Training, Fully Subsidised (Fee-Free)

About the training

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.

Strategix also offers a range of courses for those who wish to complete Vocational Training in School (VETiS) at a certificate II level and are is funded by the Queensland Government. To see a full list of VETiS funded courses refer to our VETiS Funding page.
