Start a Training Guarantee

  1. Speak to your school’s career counsellor or VET coordinator to make sure you meet all the eligibility criteria and then work out the details.
  2. You, your school and the ACCCO SA will draw up a formal Education and Training Plan. (Your parent/guardian will also need to agree to this.)

If you are a School Based Apprentice, you don't need to do anything - your training will continue to be funded after you leave school  in the qualification shown on the Training Contract you signed.

Where your VET studies post school are in a trade qualification, you will need to find an employer to take you as an apprentice before you can start at ACCCO SA (if you can't get an apprenticeship, you may have to do an alternative qualification).
