• Our vision

    Our vision is to provide a pathway where schools and industry work together to develop a skilled workforce and meet future industry employment needs.

Who we are

The atEAST School Based Apprenticeship and Traineeship (SBAT) Program is a School Based Program in Victoria offered to senior students as part of their VCAL program. Our vision is to provide a pathway where schools and industry work together to develop a skilled workforce and meet future industry employment needs.

atEAST is a consortium of ten secondary schools in the Eastern Region of Melbourne, that have a like-minded desire to meet the diverse needs of the students and believe that all students can succeed and that success will come in a variety of ways. The schools believe that to meet diverse student needs requires a broad range of curriculum options for students and the ability to access multiple pathways, something best achieved in co-operation with like-minded organisations.

The atEAST SBAT Program is extremely successful and involves a partnership between the ten consortium schools, the Registered Training Organisations (RTOs), the employers and the many students that participate in our program.
