KEY DATES On-line Subject Selections Close Wednesday 20th August SET Plan Interviews Monday 25th August

26 School-based Traineeship/
Apprenticeship Also known as SATs with Mrs Kerr

27 What is a SAT? SATs allow high school students to work for an employer and train towards a recognised qualification while completing their secondary school, as well as studying for their Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE).

28 Who is eligible? Students in Year 10/11/12 are eligible to become a school-based apprentice or trainee. Students who have indicated on their SET Plan that they are interested in a SAT.

29 How do SATs work? * Students attend the workplace one day a week.
* Students are paid. * 50 days a year required. * Additional training – theory. Students attend the workplace one day a week. Students are paid whilst in productive work for the employer. Must complete 50 work days in a twelve month period. Not enough school Wednesdays, so students make up the extra days on school holidays. Students are permitted to work more that 50 days.

30 Getting started Talk to your family. Speak to employers.
Caboolture SHS will assist with essential paperwork for a SAT once YOU find an employer Talk to your family – they are the best source of finding an employer that may be interested in taking you on as a SAT. Caboolture SHS is NOT an employment agency, but from time to time employers will contact the school to see if any students are interested in applying for SATs they may have. In this case, these positions are advertised on the Student Notices, and on a whiteboard outside my Office in Administration Block.

31 Watch the daily notices!
Occasionally an employer contacts the school looking for a student wanting to do a SAT – listen to daily notices for this information.

32 I have found an employer- now what do I do?
Contact school ASAP. Contact WHO at the school? Mrs Kerr

* Employer * Trainee & Parent * Australian Apprenticeship Centre (AAC) * School- Mrs Kerr * Supervising Registered Training Organization (SRTO) * Department of Education, Training & Employment (DETE) Once a decision has been made to be signed as a SAT, the process takes about an hour. An Australian Apprenticeship Centre (AAC) is responsible for completing the legal paperwork and submitting it to the Government. Present at the signup will be, the Employer, the Trainee, Parent/Guardian of Trainee (if trainee under 18), a representative of an ACC and a school representative. Employer selects a Registered Training Organization who is paid by the government to delivery the ‘off-the-job’ training.

34 You bring information to Mrs Kerr.
Mrs Kerr organises the paperwork. The SAT must be approved by the Principal and formal papers must be signed by the Principal.
