School based Traineeships
School-aged workers have the opportunity to study a Certificate II level qualification in a range of fields with Tubal as a School-based Traineeship. This traineeship can be based around the hours that the student is currently or able to work, and they will receive payment for the shifts they are working, learning and being assessed within the workplace.
School based traineeships with Tubal are run through a blended model of workplace and online learning, meaning that there is no class-time, and no cumbersome and messy workbooks. Students move through a series of workplace tasks that are mapped to the units of competency chosen to reflect their job role within the organisation. They are also questioned on their knowledge in these areas, and learning resources are provided through Tubal’s unique online Learning Management System to support this process. They will also have access to a dedicated and industry qualified Trainer and Assessor from Tubal that will visit them in the workplace regularly, and support their needs during their learning.
To be eligible for a school-based traineeship, students must be 15 years of age or older, be working an average of 8 hours or more per week (averaged over a 3 month period). This will come in different forms depending on the schools advice, but some may be available all day on a weekday, some may be after school hours and weekends. Students must have the consent and support of both their parents and their school’s VET coordinator before enrolling.
The traineeships are fully funded by the state and federal governments, and attract no enrolment fees for the trainee or the employer. The traineeships have a nominal duration period of 18 months, but as they are competency-based qualifications, they can usually be completed earlier (average around 9 – 12 months).
School-based trainees get the benefit of recognition of completion of the traineeship forming part of their WACE graduation results. As all learning and assessment is conducted on the job, they will not be required to spend any time in a classroom, and will not need to sit any exams or hand in any written assignments or workbooks. The Tubal trainer and assessor may also recognise the trainee’s current venue training and previous work experience as part of the assessment process.
