A VET study is quite different to sitting in a normal school classroom.

VET Courses are provided by Registered Training Organisations (RTO) which are usually TAFE Institutions and are heavily aligned with ‘hands on’ practical industry experience  - hence the term ‘vocational training.’


A School-based Apprenticeship and Traineeship combines: part-time, practical experience in the workplace, and recognised, structured training with a Registered Training Organisation and school studies.

School-based Apprenticeships and Traineeships are open to students 15 years of age or over. Year 10 students can start an SBA in semester two of their Year 10 program.

To complete a School-based Apprenticeships or Traineeships in Victoria, the student must be enrolled in Years 10, 11 or 12.
