Applecross SHS is a highly ranked public school in WA for ATAR performance, but they also strongly support students on the vocational education and training pathway. ATC Work Smart has been working with Applecross SHS students for the last 2 years, and September sees a second band of year 12’s completing school based traineeships through ATC Work Smart. Students in the past have completed SBT qualifications in Community Pharmacy, Business, Hospitality, Horticulture and Sport and Recreation. School Based trainees, get paid, complete a nationally recognised qualification at no cost, have a qualification that contributes towards their WACE, gain valuable transportable employability skills and occasionally create job opportunities that can walk into after finishing year 12. Congratulations to all the ATC Work Smart SBT students.
Pictured in the photo are 5 of the 7 YR12 students that have either completed or are completing a school based traineeship this month.
