VET in Schools

Vocational Education Training courses (VET Courses) provide an opportunity to achieve a Nationally Recognised qualification or statement of attainment across a broad range of industries, whilst completing your Higher School Certificate. 

VET courses allow you to obtain real-life work sills and practical experience to assist you in transferring your learning in the classrooms into a meaningful career. Achieving a VET course can give you a significant advantage when entering the workforce, and open opportunitues for further pathways for study. 

Our school based traineeship and EVET program is purposely designed around the needs and interests of students who are eager to begin their career pathway in Early Childhood Education and Care, School Age Education and Care, Education Support, Individual Support (Ageing or Disability), Community Services and Business.

As with all students, our VET in Schools students become an integral part of the KTS family. For many, this may be a first job; a stepping stone into further study or an alternative to mainstream formal education. Whatever the reason(s), students are immersed into a work environment that is fast paced, exciting and challenging while learning real work skills and being paid.

To enquire about or express your interest in undertaking an SBAT or EVET pathway with KARBEN Training Solutions please contact our team on (02) 4353 7188 or email

What is the difference between an SBAT pathway or EVET pathway?

Both VET in Schools options offer direct pathways to further education employment for students, as well as provide a number of benefits to Stage 6 students; however it is important to know the difference between them so that you can chose the right program for you.

The School Based Traineeship (SBAT) program combines paid work, school and a VET qualification, assisting you to gain valuable work skills and experience while you are studying. Instead of completing work placement in blocks, an SBAT completes one day a week in paid employment with their employer in their chosen industry. An SBAT course can still count towards your HSC, may still be eligible to contribute to your ATAR (for certain courses) and enables you to achieve a nationally recognised qualification. SBATs enter a training contract with their employer, school, RTO and Training Services NSW for the duration of their training contract and must agree to meet the contract requirements.

EVET is an externally delivered VET course, delivered by a Registered Training Organisation like KARBEN Training Solutions (KTS). An EVET course is delivered as a school subject and will include a mandatory work placement component where you can put your classroom learning into practice! Some of these courses are also eligible to count towards your Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR), if you elect to sit the HSC Exam for this subject.

The main difference between the SBAT and EVET pathway is that through EVET the student is not attached to an employer.

Information for Students and Schools

Introductory Courses

In 2020, we launched two programs to support High School students to engage with real employers who had potential school based traineeship opportunities upcoming. These two programs are:

  • Carers of the Future
  • Educators of the Future

Our Carers of the Future and Educators of the Future programs provided students with the opportunity to undertake selected nationally-recognised units of competency relevant to the industry and put their theory into practice through work experience opportunities.

Our Futures Programs have seen great outcomes for our students, with 70% of students securing a school based traineeship on completion of the program and continuing on to further study.

Futures Programs are available across multiple regions within NSW. Contact our team for further information regarding upcoming programs.
