Glossary term: School Based New Apprenticeship

Acronym: SBNA

A formal, structured employment and training arrangement where the student, while counting as a full-time school student, is employed part-time as an apprentice or trainee. As with other apprentices and trainees, a contract of training is established which is registered with the appropriate state registration authority. In addition to a vocational education and training (VET) qualification which is most commonly at Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) level 2, the training generally counts towards the student's senior secondary school certificate and in some cases for tertiary entrance ranking.

Now called Australian School-based Apprenticeships.
