Northern SBAT Network

Northern SBAT Network

The Northern School Based Apprenticeship and Traineeship (SBAT) Network promotes the successful delivery of SBATs within schools in the Northern region of Melbourne.

It is facilitated by the three LLENs from the Northern region (Banyule Nillumbik LLEN, Hume Whittlesea LLEN and Inner Northern LLEN), to bring together stakeholders who support the development and delivery of SBATs in Melbourne’s north. This includes Secondary Schools, Further Education Providers, Registered Training Organisations (RTOs), Group Training Organisations (GTOs), Australian Apprenticeship Support Network Providers (AASNs), Employment Services and other local SBAT providers.

The members some together 4 times per year to:

  • Participate in a collective forum that promotes cross sector partnerships to strengthen SBAT opportunities and deliver on quality outcomes
  • Respond to demand in skills shortage areas with training and employment opportunities
  • Develop new and improve existing training resources in support of quality SBAT delivery
  • Promote successful delivery of SBATs within schools through increased awareness and training, and through responding to needs within schools and the community
  • Increase opportunities for young people in the region to access SBATs as a viable career and training option.
  • Provide Professional Development to relevant staff in the requirements and provision of SBATs.
