Australian School Based Apprenticeships (ASbA)

ASbAs offer students the opportunity to achieve a nationally recognised qualification by combining paid
work and training as part of their education program during Years 11 and 12.

A Certificate II qualification requires a minimum of 8 hours in the workplace and a minimum of 3 hours
off the job training per week. ASbAs are also available for some Certificate III qualifications.
Undertaking an ASbA contributes towards your ACT Senior Secondary Certificate.

ASbAs can be undertaken in a number of industry areas. They are a valuable experience and provide
pathways to future training and employment.

The VET coordinator and Transitions and Careers Officer are available to assist you to explore ASbA options and
