Apprenticeships and traineeships are available to young people in Years 11 and 12.
This means they combine studying for the Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE) with training and work (spending three days a week at school, one day training and one day at work).
There are four options available:
- Pre-Apprenticeships in Schools (PAiS) allow young people to try different jobs in the industry they are interested in or to undertake an industry specific pre-apprenticeship. They then progress to an apprenticeship.
- School-based apprenticeships allow young people to start their apprenticeship on a part-time basis at school and continue full-time or part-time after leaving school.
- School-based traineeships allow young people to complete qualifications while at school.
- Aboriginal school-based training provides opportunities for young Aboriginal people to gain a qualification, continue with further education and training or employment, while still at school.
