Applications are now open for the 2025 school-based pre-apprenticeship program.

A school-based pre-apprenticeship is a great way for students in Years 11 and 12 to work towards a trade qualification in plumbing.

This program is fully funded by the Department of Training and Workforce Development, so there is no course fee charged to the student.
(Some schools charge a training centre fee. Please speak with your VET Coordinator for further details).

Upon course completion, students are awarded Certificate II in Plumbing and the qualification count towards their final school grades.

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS: There are now minimum entrance requirements to enter into a School Based Pre Apprenticeship program. Your school will need to make sure that you are work ready and academically capable of completing the program.  Students must be going into Year 11 or 12 and have a C Grade average to be eligible for the program.
