Get better learning outcomes for your school
Over the past 25 years, AFL Sportsready has worked with over 350 schools across Australia to help deliver better learning outcomes for students. We are focussed on providing ‘gap year’ traineeship opportunities for young Australians.
Schools have always been great supporters of our program, as we provide specialist support services designed to ease the time pressures all teachers face.
In 2017/18, our school partners provided traineeships to over 200 young people in their sports, business administration, IT, horticulture and performing arts departments. Throughout our history, we have a proven track record in working with schools and achieving excellent results for both teachers and trainees:
- – 92% completed a nationally recognised qualification, while on the job
- – 73% went to university and almost half of those into teaching
- – 17% were employed full time in the school after completing their traineeship
In our traineeship model, AFL SportsReady, will become your contractor and the legal employer of your trainee, taking all responsibility for their pay, leave, superannuation and Work Cover, allowing your staff to get on with the real work of developing programs to assist your students’ learning.
We see this vocational model as a credible pathway into teaching.
Many of our young trainees take it as an opportunity to test whether they want to pursue a teaching career. The experience is often seen as a ‘gap year’ that serves to sharpen their focus on what they want to do.
