School-based apprenticeships (SBA) and traineeships (SBT)
School-based apprenticeships and traineeships provide students with the opportunity to commence their chosen apprenticeship or traineeship prior to leaving school. Students can commence their career path by combining school, paid work and on-the-job training. A SBA or SBT is negotiated between the student, parent/carer, employer, supervising registered training organisation (SRTO) and school to ensure it provides a genuine school-based learning opportunity and forms an appropriate component of an overall school program. On completion of the apprenticeship or traineeship, students are eligible to receive a nationally recognised qualification. Any competencies that are completed prior to leaving at the end of Year 12 can contribute to the Queensland Certificate of Education.

Structured work placement/work experience
Structured Work Placement is unpaid work that provides students with the opportunity to experience the workplace in an area that they feel they may be interested in pursuing in the future. The experience allows students to explore career paths, gain knowledge, skills and values relevant to the workplace, increase their confidence and make contacts that could lead to future jobs. Students may go out on Structured Work Placement one day per week or for a week at a time.
