What is a School Based Apprenticeship & Traineeship?

A School Based Apprenticeship and Traineeship (SBAT) offers students the option of combining their senior secondary education with part-time employment and skills training. The program is undertaken under a formal training contract with an employer and has a training plan registered with the Victorian Registration and Qualifications Authority (VRQA). The training must lead to a nationally recognised qualification, as determined by the VRQA.

Parks & Gardens SBAT at Lyndhurst Secondary College

At Lyndhurst Secondary College, we have partnered with National Food Institute and Gre8 to offer our very own SBAT, studying a Certificate II in Horticulture. Students must be 15 years of age when they commence the SBAT which runs for 12 months. Students will complete two days of classroom training in theory, observations and practical hands-on learning in the gardens of Lyndhurst Secondary College. Students will attend their regular classes for the other three days a week.
