Graduation - School based Apprenticeships and Traineeships (SBATs)


School based Apprenticeships and Traineeships (SBATs)
Graduation 2017

This year we trained the largest cohort of school-based apprentices since the SBAT program began at New Futures Training over 10 years ago. 30 young people took part in the program from a range of schools including The Pavilion School, Roxburgh College, Gateway School, Penola Catholic College, Princes Hill Secondary College, Croxton School, Peter Lalor Vocational College, Sydney Road Community School and St Joseph’s Flexible Learning Centre.

Students graduating from Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care and Certificate III in Community Services gathered at New Futures Creative, along with their family and friends to receive their certificates and celebrate their achievements of the year.

This year the Certificate III students in Community Services also partnered with Oxygen Youth Centre in Moreland in youth mental health first aid training, so that they could respond effectively to friends and peers experiencing mental health issues. They also received basic camera training and after interviewing and photographing VICSEG staff, they produced an exhibition titled Humans of VICSEG. The exhibition featured at the SBAT end of year graduation and the AGM.

In 2018, our SBAT program will provide the added option of doing the Certificate III in Clothing and Textile Production at Coburg.
