Students may participate in School Based Traineeships or Aboriginal School Based Traineeships.  Traineeships see students engaged in paid work for either one or two days each week and completing a Certificate II level qualification relevant to that occupation.  Students also complete the required courses at school to allow the students to achieve their WACE and participate in all other school activities.  Some of the qualifications that students may complete in Traineeships that include Business, Retail, Automotive, Hospitality, Tourism, Local Government, Information Technology, Hairdressing and Nail Technology.
