The simple fact of life is that the ‘traditional’ school model does not necessarily suit all students. Opened in June 2012 and operated as a trade-specific arm of Swan Christian College, Swan Trade Training Centre (STTC) provides quality trade training and career pathways in an innovative and supportive school-based environment.
The STTC offers a fixed two-year course over Years 11 and 12 allowing students to graduate from Swan Christian College with their WACE, including the successful completion of the Certificate III Business and Certificate II Pre-apprenticeship in their chosen trade course inclusive of 220 hours of work experience. Courses are developed with industry input that ensures the training offered is current and relevant.
STTC is a dedicated trade training facility that operates within all of the existing procedures and policies of Swan Christian College. Students participate in all College House-based pastoral activities and selected students are involved in the College student leadership programs. Our staff are trade qualified and experienced, and support students with mentoring, career advice, business insight and skills to assist with employment.
Swan Trade Training Centre aims to produce confident, well-rounded students who become ‘top class’ apprentices equipped with industry grade skills and professionalism, and pride themselves on a job well done.
