In addition students are able to undertake various opportunities from industries within the Sydney area and complete pre-apprenticeship training with industries such as: Endeavour Energy, Aviation at Bankstown airport, RSPCA, Tip Top bakeries and ING Direct Bank.


School Based Apprenticeship and Training - SBAT

Students at our school have the opportunity to complete an SBAT whilst also studying all other mainstream courses in Year 11 and 12. The areas in which SBATs can be completed are very diverse and link in with industry in our local area. Students are able to complete their first year of apprenticeship, studying at TAFE one day a week and gain paid employment in the occupation they are studying.
