Start your career before you finish Year 12

AITC graduates can have up to 30% of their industry qualification completed by the end of Year 12.

The Australian School-based Apprenticeships & Traineeships (SATs) is designed to allow the young people of the AITC to commence an apprenticeship or traineeship in industry while completing their senior education.

The AITC will facilitate the transition from school to a career in industry through an Australian School-based Apprenticeships & Traineeships (SATs).

Following a pre-apprenticeship training program that includes first aid, tool and equipment knowledge and use, employability skills and OH&S, they commence their trade career via structured work experience that culminates in selection by the employer as apprentice or trainee.

At the completion of their two years at the AITC their SATs is typically converted into a full-time apprenticeship with their employer with up to one third of their apprenticeship completed.

Besides the most commonly sought after industry jobs including building and construction, automotive and engineering, the AITC can offer you over 600 apprenticeships and traineeships at our Gold CoastRedlandsSunshine Coast, Toowoomba or Ipswich campuses – be brave and explore!
