School-based traineeships

“Providing career pathways to students and a flexible way of moving from school to the workplace”.

Gforce Strategies 4 Excellence offers school-based traineeships to Years 11 & 12 students.

School-based traineeships offer students the option of combining school, paid part-time employment and formal training in order to achieve a nationally recognised qualification and credit towards their VCE or VCAL.

How does it work?

Strategies 4 Excellence:

  • Becomes the legal employer and takes on all employment responsibilities including pay and taxation.
  • Places the student with a Host Employer for the practical work experience.
  • Organises the relevant training program with a Registered Training Organisation (RTO).
