New guide for school-based apprenticeships and traineeships now available

The Department of Training and Workforce Development has released a new guide to Western Australian school-based apprenticeships and traineeships. The guide was developed collaboratively with stakeholders and is now available on their website.

The new guide provides detailed information on the important aspects involved in a school-based apprenticeships and traineeships (SBAT) arrangement. It provides help and support for schools, registered training organisations (RTOs), employers, students, parents and other stakeholders operating in Western Australia’s apprenticeship and traineeship system.

It includes:

  • a quick guide which highlights the key steps involved in an SBAT from starting out through to completion;
  • real life examples to make it easier to understand how SBATs actually work in practice;
  • information on the different roles and responsibilities of each of the stakeholders, including the importance of effective communication and collaboration; and
  • website links for easy access to fact sheets, forms and other relevant information.   

The guide is available as an online resource and can also be downloaded and printed.
