A school-based traineeship allows students to combine their Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) or Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) with 7 hours a week of paid part-time work in their chosen industry. Work placement times are scheduled around school timetables and industry requirements.
Students are also released from their school timetable one afternoon each week to attend a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) where they complete their formal training.
Students attending schools in the Western suburbs of Melborune attend training on days negotiated around their school timetable. For Geelong programs, students are released from school on a Wednesday afternoon, with Ballarat and Bacchus Marsh students attending their RTO on a Thursday afternoon.
Successful completion of the traineeship also results in students receiving credits towards either their VCE or VCAL.
