School Based Apprenticeships

A School based Traineeship allow students to combine their Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) or Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) with 7 hours a week of paid part-time work in their chosen industry. Work placement times are scheduled around school timetables and industry requirements.

Students are also released from their school timetable one afternoon each week to attend a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) where they complete their formal training. VFA learning offer training out of our 3 convenient locations in Essendon Fields, Geelong and Narre Warren. Successful completion of the traineeship also results in student receiving credits towards either their VCE or VCAL.

As well as gaining a nationally recognised qualification, students also gain valuable experience as they receive part-time employment in their chosen industry for 7 hours a week for the duration of the program.
