School-Based Apprenticeships – Earn while Studying!

Posted on Jan 25, 2022

Still at school and thinking about your options?

Get hands-on experience and exposed to much more than just trade skills. The work-like environment also helps develop future-ready skills such as collaboration, problem-solving and people management. Meet Declan Gladigau and Cody Krollig from SA. They are currently attending Unity College and Murray Bridge State High school and are on the job site 2 days a week each. A school-based apprenticeship gives students the opportunity to have a go without the pressure of a full apprenticeship and to get a head start on their chosen trade career pathway.


Meet the current and future skills need of your business. Hiring an apprentice is a productive and effective way to grow talent and develop a motivated, skilled and qualified workforce. We need more supportive employers like Bradley Wakefield (Bradley Wakefield Bricklaying) who are motivated to mentor, train and support the next generation.

School-based Apprenticeships provide students aged 15 years or older with valuable employment skills, hands-on industry experience and a nationally recognised qualification, while still completing secondary school qualifications. Get all the information you need to help start an apprenticeship – If you are in SA or QLD contact our Industry Engagement Officer: Tenille Reilly at or 0475 909 040.
