The HSC allows students to undertake study in a variety of vocational areas that provide work-related skills and knowledge. These VET courses count as units of study towards the HSC and many can also be used in the calculation of your Australian Tertiary Admissions Ranking (ATAR).

SBAT (School Based Apprenticeships/Traineeships)..
A School Based Apprenticeship or Traineeship combines paid work with TAFE training and school. The SBA option is equivalent to the first year of a full-time apprenticeship, whilst an SBT will provide a certificate of proficiency in the traineeship area- a great start for your post-school career options!
Both of these options allow students to obtain valuable work skills and experience whilst undertaking paid part-time work as part of their HSC study.
