TAFE SA has designed a range of accredited and non-accredited courses especially for high school students.
These courses provide an opportunity for school students to trial studies in a particular area of interest.
The accredited short courses may provide a pathway to further studies through the Training Guarantee for SACE Students, School Based Apprenticeships and Traineeships or further studies with TAFE SA.
Some courses may gain credits towards SACE – check with your school teacher or VET coordinator for clarification.
Talk to us about customising a course for your students if you can't see what you need.
A School Based Apprenticeship or Traineeship (SBAT) allows senior secondary students to begin their apprenticeship or traineeship in Years 10, 11 or 12, combining paid employment and structured work-related training as part of their South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE).
SBATs are a pathway to employment in a trade or occupation, self-employment, further training or higher education.
The Training Guarantee for SACE Students (TGSS) is for school students who plan undertaking vocational training upon leaving school. If you're 16 years or older and studying a TGSS course, you're guaranteed a place to finish the qualification upon completion of SACE.
TAFE SA supports the provision of Vocational Education and Training (VET) in schools.
Undertaking a VET program enables students to develop industry specific skills and gain a nationally recognised qualification while completing the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE).
