Combine Work and Training
A School Based Apprenticeship (ASbA) allows students in Years 10, 11 or 12 to combine work and training with their education to gain a nationally recognized qualification. In Civil Construction this is generally Certificate 3 in Civil Construction. These students attend school and work a minimum of 7.5 and maximum of 15.2 hours per week, either in school time or after hours. Students sign up to a training plan with the Employer, Australian Apprenticeship Support Network Provider (AASN) (In Tasmania these are MAS National and MEGT) and the RTO delivering the training package.
