What is an Apprenticeship Broker?
Apprenticeship Brokers are employed by the Department for Education and Child Development (DECD) as part of the Trade Schools for the Future strategy. They provide a service within a cluster of DECD secondary schools. The role is to facilitate school-based apprenticeships between students, parents/caregivers, employers, schools and Registered Training Organisations. This involves case management, negotiation of work days or hours and a review of students school timetables and SACE completion.
The North East Adelaide Trade School for the Future has one Apprenticeship Broker, Natalie Lynch.
Natalie works closely with students, school staff and parents/caregivers to connect students with employers to establish School-Based Apprenticeships.
How can I meet with an Apprenticeship Broker?
Year 10,11 or 12 students from DECD secondary schools in the North East Adelaide Trade School for the Future cluster (and their parents/caregivers) can arrange a meeting with the Apprenticeship Broker. Students can contact their school's VET Coordinator to arrange a meeting.
