Courses for School Students

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.

Training Guarantee for SACE 

To study a Training Guarantee for SACE (TGSS) course, you must be in year 11 at a minimum, and be 16 years old, or turning 16 during year 11. A TGSS course allows you to start studying a TAFE SA qualification while you're still at school, and you'll be guaranteed a place to finish the qualification at TAFE SA upon completion of your SACE.

School Based Apprenticeships and Traineeships

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.
