Structured W​ork Placement​

The Structured Work Placement involves approximately 100 students attending work placement each week in a range of businesses covering a number of occupations and industries in the Ipswich and Brisbane area. Student​​​s are able to gain a wealth of knowledge in a variety of fields which assists them in choosing the correct pathway to follow after school.

School-b​​​​ased Apprenticeships or Traineeships

A School-based Apprenticeship or Traineeship (SAT) is undertaken part-time while the Apprentice/Trainee is at school. The arrangement combines paid employment, off-the-job vocational training and senior secondary school studies. Students who undertake SATs are supported by the College through flexible timetabling arrangements which are tailored to meet the needs of the individual students.
