Some conditions do apply. The State Government Training Guarantee will guarantee you a place at TAFE SA if:
- you successfully complete the SACE, including at least 30 SACE credits of nationally accredited VET in certain qualifications and at least 140 hours of relevant work placement in an identified, approved qualification
- after you finish school, you intend to complete the Certificate III (or higher) at TAFE SA that you commenced as part of your SACE
- you don't intend to take a break or 'gap year' after finishing school.
The first thing you need to do is to speak to your school's career counsellor or VET coordinator to make sure you meet all the conditions and then work out the details.
Next, all these things will be included in a formal Education and Training Plan that you, your parent/guardian, your school and TAFE SA will negotiate and agree to.
If you are a School Based Apprentice, you don't need to do anything - your training will continue to be funded after you leave school in the qualification shown on the Training Contract you signed.
