School Based Apprenticeships

Start your Career

Start a career in Civil Construction.

A pathway has been developed with Beacon and the Department of Education for Australian School Based Apprenticeships for the Civil Construction Industry.

Combine Work and Training

A School Based Apprenticeship (ASbA) allows students in Years 10, 11 or 12 to combine work and training with their education to gain a nationally recognized qualification. In Civil Construction this is generally Certificate 3 in Civil Construction. These students attend school and work a minimum of 7.5 and maximum of 15.2 hours per week, either in school time or after hours. Students sign up to a training plan with the Employer, Australian Apprenticeship Support Network Provider (AASN) (In Tasmania these are MAS National and MEGT) and the RTO delivering the training package.

Get the Support you need

The student is then supported to continue to gain their Year 12 TCE education whilst gaining on the job skills and experience and training.  They must continue at school in order to maintain their employment.
