School Based Apprenticeships and Traineeships (SBATs)

Year 11 and 12 students are gaining valuable work skills and experience through paid employment whilst completing secondary schooling.

School based apprenticeships and traineeships (SBATs) are providing students with the opportunity to attain a nationally recognised Vocational Education and Training (VET) qualification, as well as the Higher School Certificate (HSC) during years 11 and 12.

Burraga Foundation, is working with students, NSW TAFE, the NSW Department of Education and NSW State Training Services to deliver Burraga SBATs opportunities.

Burraga Trainees through the further support of the Elsa Dixon Foundation making available funding, receive 100 hours of paid employment whilst remaining at school completing their traineeship. The students will develop ICT and web development skills by working specifically on the Burraga Foundations, Storylines initiative.

The Storylines initiative, supports Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and schools to build relationship through story telling and the creation of a local Community website resource.
