School-based Apprentice or Trainee (SBAT) Program

Why should I study in the SBAT Program?

If you have a school-based apprenticeship or traineeship, you will need to have a flexible SACE that considers both your school requirements and your employer’s needs. In the School-based Apprentice or Trainee (SBAT) Program, we provide flexible SACE subjects that will enable you to complete SACE by attending school one day per week and be employed four days per week.

Where does the SBAT Program lead?

The SBAT Program is suitable for students with an apprenticeship or traineeship in any industry area. Upon completion of your SACE compulsory subjects, students will be able to move into full-time employment to complete their training. They will be able to use the credits gained in their apprenticeship or traineeship for SACE completion.

What work will I do in the SBAT Program?

The Year 11 SBAT class will run on Tuesdays, while Year 12 class will run on Fridays. The number of subjects completed by each student will vary depending on the SACE subjects they have already completed. At a minimum, students will be given the opportunity to complete compulsory subjects in English, Mathematics and Research Project. Additional subjects can be added if time and schedules permit.

What do other students think about the SBAT Program?

Thebarton SC guided and supported me throughout the entire process of job seeking and applying for my traineeship, and continued to support and offer additional help while completing my traineeship and SACE. 11/10 would recommend!
