School Based Apprenticeship/Traineeship Programs

Did you know ATQLD developed the original School-Based Apprenticeship program?  In 1997, 12 Year 11 students commenced Boiler making Apprenticeships under a School-Based scheme. This program is now delivered across Australia and a very proud accomplishment in ATQLD’s history.

Students, particularly in years 10, 11 and 12, are able to participate in school-based Apprenticeships and Traineeships which allows the student to study for their Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE), whilst working and training towards a recognised qualification.​
