What is a School Based Traineeship (SBAT)?
- Students are matched with employers & spend approx. 1 day per week working in their business.
- Students receive vocational training to match the industry they are employed in.
- Students generally undertake the SBAT over 1 to 2 years.
- The SBAT contributes to VCAL and/or other education qualification.
- Students receive a training wage for time spent in the workplace.
- In most cases Centrelink payments will not be affected.
What are the benefits of a School Based Traineeship (SBAT)?
- Students gain confidence and skills that will increase their employability options post school.
- Students receive an opportunity to try a vocational area that interests them.
- Students get a chance to build links with potential future employers.

Who is eligible to participate in Ticket to Work?
