Trade Training Centre

Gateway to the construction and building sector

We are proud to boast a dedicated Trade Training Centre for students pursuing a career in the building and construction industry.

Our Trade pathway provides students with the essential theoretical knowledge plus practical skills and workplace experience for entry into one of eleven construction trades.

  • Certificate I/II in Construction pathways - bricklaying, tiling and rendering/plastering.
  • Develop construction skills in paving, concreting, basic carpentry and wall framing.

Students enjoy trade facilities and amenities of professional standards and are able to develop valuable technical experience and take part in challenging projects.

The Centre houses:

  • two large internal workshops
  • impressive external workshop
  • seminar rooms
  • classroom

To showcase the skills developed in our Construction program, students were involved in the construction process of the building, creating a curved wall section with excellent results.

Industry leaders have recognised the Centre for its potential as a gateway into the construction sector.

Our Trade pathway leads to a nationally recognised qualification endorsed by the School Curriculum and Standards Authority and can account for 8 units toward the WACE upon successful completion.

The Centre offers 32 places - applications can be made through the VET co-ordinator at your school.
