About VETis & SBAT

South Australian Learning Centre (SALC) offers VET in Schools (VETis) and School-Based Traineeship Pathways (SBAT). 

School-Based Traineeships (SBAT)

School-Based Traineeships allow school students from year 10 and up to begin working and training in the field of their choice as part of their SACE. This pathway enables students to complete their final years of school while working part-time. At SALC we work closely with our industry partners to ensure students are supported throughout the process and are given all the tools to succeed. Our hope is for our students to on to gain full-time employment once their studies and/.traineeship are complete.
