Employing a SAT
There are five steps you must follow when employing a SAT. These steps are outlined on the How to employ an apprentice or trainee web page.
However, when considering employing a school-based apprentice or trainee, there are specific requirements that differ from employing an adult apprentice or trainee. Read ATIS-026 School-based apprenticeships and traineeships information sheet for details on these requirements.
How much does it cost?
School-based apprentices' or trainees' wages are usually a percentage of the relevant full-time apprentice or trainee wage calculated on the number of hours the student works each week. Phone Fair Work Infoline on 13 13 94 to find out more about wages.
Employer should also be aware of other costs associated with employing a school-based apprentice or trainee. Visit the Costs and incentives page in the Business section of this website.
