Head Start (Reference 116)
Head is an apprenticeship and traineeship pathway for secondary students. Head Start students are encouraged to spend more time doing important, paid, on-the-job training while completing their senior secondary certificate.
No 2023 Indicative Student Resource Package (SRP) is available as recruitment is underway for the program and host schools may change. This will only be applicable from 2023 Confirmed SRP.
Schools with the following campus types are eligible for Head Start funding at a school level:
- Primary/Secondary Combined
Funding is calculated at the Indicative, Confirmed and Revised cycles. Funding is allocated through credit funding.
SRP credit funding will be provided to participating schools that host Head Start staff.
Funding will cover salary and will be allocated based on salary rates and time fractions of Head Start staff employed in each cluster.
Operational costs will be funded through the Schools targeted funding governance (Education account required).
Note: Arrangements have been made so mileage can be processed in eduPay and charged directly to the program area. For more information, contact email@example.com
