Invest in the future of your workforce by hiring an Australian School Based Apprentice or Trainee (ASBA).

What is an Australian School Based Apprentice?

An Australian School Based Apprenticeship (ASBA), also known as a School Based Apprenticeship or Traineeship (SBAT) is the opportunity for a student to combine their school education with paid, part-time employment and training.

What’s involved?

When taking on an ASBA, you are employing a staff member for a minimum of 13 hours a week for the duration of their Training Contract, allowing them to learn the practical skills required for their qualification.

Once they have successfully completed their apprenticeship or traineeship, you have the opportunity to continue employing them outside of the Training Contract.

Benefits of hiring an Australian School Based Apprentice?

  • It is an extra pair of hands to assist in achieving your business objectives;
  • You get an enthusiastic, loyal and well trained person for your business;
  • Build your base entry level workforce;
  • It is an opportunity to give back to your local community, whilst potentially preparing your student to be a long term employee; and
  • Give a young person a head start in their chosen industry.
