SBATs

Students at our college undertake school based apprenticeships, or SBATs. An SBAT is an Australian Apprenticeship which is undertaken part-time while the Australian Apprentice is at school. An SBAT arrangement combines paid employment as an apprentice or a trainee, off-the-job vocational training and senior secondary school studies. SBATs provides senior secondary school students with hands-on industry experience, and the ability to work towards or complete a nationally recognised qualification, while they complete their senior school certificate.

School-based Apprenticeships and Traineeships are open to students 15 years of age, and want the ability to work towards or complete a nationally recognised qualification, while they complete their VCE or VCAL. SBATs form an integral part of the student’s school learning program and study timetable and a minimum of one day of the normal school week.

If you are interested in completing a SBAT, please book an appointment with the Careers Practitioner Mr Goode. For further information on SBATs and how they can fit in to your future career pathway, please log on to the Coolock Student Portal (click here).  You will need your password to login.
