Students must gain support from their school to undertake a school-based apprenticeship or traineeship (SAT). The work and/or training of the SAT must impact on the school timetable to be considered school-based.
The school, student, their parent/ guardian employer and training organisation will negotiate a schedule which outlines when the student is at school, work or training. This schedule must indicate exactly how the SAT will impact on the school timetable.
The training plan will also need to be negotiated between the student, employer and training organisation, and will specify training needs, how and when training will take place, who will provide the training and how training will be assessed.
The school has a role in providing support to the student throughout the SAT.
