What is a School Based Traineeship?

A student combines studying towards their Tasmanian Certificate of Education (TCE) with employment and studying a Nationally Recognised Qualification.

The qualification will be a Certificate II in Information, Digital Media and Technology.


Here are the headlines:

TasICT have partnered to simplify all of the paperwork and trainee management.

The trainee can work for a minimum of 7.5 hours and a maximum of 15 hours per week during a school term.

They may be willing to work extra hours during holidays if required. The hours of work can be negotiated with the trainee, with the proviso that they attend all school or college activities and any classes associated with their traineeship.
