NSHS offers School Based Traineeships (SBTs) in partnership with community organisations and employers, providing additional and improved opportunities for transitioning into trade related fields of employment. What is offered is based on student expression of interest and negotiated with our partners. As part of the Senior School course selection process Year 10 students submit an Expression of Interest in a SBT Pathway as part of course counselling process. The school, Apprenticeship Support Australia and potential providers explore possible SBT availability and provision, based on Expression of Interest of Year 10 students, for the following year. What can be offered, once negotiated, is communicated to applicable students. Some opportunities may arise during the school year and students are contacted based on their previous expressions of interest.
In 2020 the following SBT’s are being run:
- BHP – Business
- BHP – Automotive Servicing
- BHP – Automotive Electrical
- V-Swans – Cert 3 Sport and Recreation
- Newman Shire – Cert 2 Sport and Recreation
- Newman Shire and YMCA – Cert 2
NSHS also offers the following Certificates for Year 11 and 12 students on the main timetable grid. The course numbers for these are capped.
Both SBTs and Certs require students to follow an application process.
