School Based Traineeships

School based traineeships are employment-based pathways towards a qualification for secondary school students, allowing the trainee the opportunity to gain a genuine employment experience.

Students who are progressing toward a Queensland Certificate of Education will be accredited QCE points for undertaking a school based traineeship with no student fees.

Students will also earn as they gain experience and learn theory components. Employers are also entitled to access federal funding for taking on a school based trainee. 

You are eligible for a school based traineeship if:

  • You are attending a registered government school or an accredited non-government school
  • You are progressing towards the attainment of a Queensland Certificate of Education or equivalent and/or a vocational qualification
  • You are enrolled in year 10, 11, or 12
  • You undertake a training contract with an employer who provides the required 375 hours of paid work or more, that is endorsed by the school.
