Australian School-Based Apprenticeships
An Australian School-based Apprenticeship (ASBA) involves the employment of a young person who is undertaking a traineeship part-time while still attending school or college and enrolled in a program leading to a senior secondary certificate.
A Certificate II qualification requires a minimum of 8 hours (equivalent to one day) in the workplace and a minimum of 3 hours off the job training per week. A Certificate III qualification has a greater time and work commitment and may require further work and study after the completion of Year 12.
ASBAs were previously known as School-based New Apprenticeships (SNAPs).
Every ASBA Training Contract submitted to the Department for approval must be endorsed by the principal of the school or college attended by the student. ASBA Online is the on-line process for schools/colleges to provide Principal Endorsement to ASBA Training Contracts for their students.
ACT Schools and Colleges Principals
Principals of schools/colleges offering ASBAs to their students are required to nominate staff who will have access to ASBA Online. Staff can be given either full access or read-only access.
For further information please contact the ACT ASBA Administrator by email ASBAs@act.gov.au.
