An ASBA is a fantastic way for a young person to begin their trade qualification while still at school. Not only will this save time completing their apprenticeship later on but it also offers the following advantages:
- Student has the opportunity to investigate the trade/career in depth without having to commit to a 3 or 4 year apprenticeship.
- The student earns money as part of the contract.
- The ASBA requires the student to complete ‘units of competence’ with in the certificate of training they undertake as part of the contract. These units all count towards the Students’ SACE!
The student will be signed-up on a contract which ususally lasts for around 15 – 18 months. The contract between the student/employer/school/Training Provider ensures that the student will work an average of 8 hours per week (in or out of school hours by negotiation) for which they are paid.
The hardest part about establishing an ASBA is finding an employer who is willing to commit to taking on a young person for the length of the contract. As a way of helping this aspect we insist on students doing work experience with the employer.
