School based Traineeships & Apprenticeships

St James College provides the opportunity to complete a school-based traineeship on the flexible programme or on a day(s) negotiated with the employer.

School-based apprenticeships & traineeships allow students generally in Years 10, 11 and 12 to:
• Undertake an apprenticeship or traineeship while still at school
• Participate in a combination of school, paid work, theoretical and structured workplace training
• Progress towards gaining a nationally recognised qualification
• Work towards completing their Senior Certificate

In addition, a completed apprenticeship or traineeship qualification will increase the student's chances of gaining entry into some tertiary courses.

Upcoming roles are advertised to students via the college email and on the Careers’ Hub notice board.
