****Please note due to changes in government funding a number of SBAT programs will not be running in 2023. Will update information as soon as confirmation is received in next couple of weeks and the SBAT Expo planned has been postponed. (22/07)

A school-based apprenticeship or traineeship (SBAT) is an apprenticeship or traineeship undertaken by a student enrolled in a senior secondary program (VCE or VCAL).

Regular school attendance is combined with at least one timetabled day per week spent on the job or in training during the normal school week.

An SBAT combines part-time, practical experience in the workplace with recognised, structured training from a Registered Training Organisation.
