This program has been developed with input from industry partners to prepare students for the engineering and construction industries with both ATAR and apprenticeship/traineeship pathways.
Students will receive a badged trade uniform for the practical and out-of-school elements of the program. Students will be led in a high-challenge, high-expectation atmosphere combined with intensive mentoring and high levels of support to progress through the program. This will include mentoring and guidance beyond school for a period of six months to ensure a smooth transition into either apprenticeship or university pathways.
At Stage 1, students will study a subject package built around the Certificate II in Engineering Pathways, Certificate II in Electrotechnology or Certificate II in Construction Pathways certificates, which provide broad practical skills and knowledge. The majority of learning experiences and assessments are anticipated to use engineering, electrotechnology or construction contexts, with a focus on the literacy, numeracy and technical skills needed in these industry areas.
Subject assessment will have a level of rigour that supports mastery learning to meet expected industry standards. Assessment in Stage 2 subjects includes school and external assessment components.
This program prepares students for exciting, rewarding and stable career opportunities for a broad range of engineering, electrotechnology and construction pathways, including electrical, mechanical, civil and advanced manufacturing, carpentry and plumbing.
This program also develops the high-level practical and academic skills that will be needed for the skilled trade pathways and apprenticeships of the future.
