This is a SACE Stage 1 and 2 program for school-based apprentices or trainees, which supports both school requirements and employer's needs. The program provides flexible SACE subjects that enables students to complete SACE by attending school one day per week and be employed four days per week in their traineeship or apprenticeship. The course structure is as follows:

SACE Stage 1 students (Friday)
  • Literacy, Numeracy, Workplace Practices (50 SACE Stage 1 credits)
SACE Stage 2 students (Friday)
