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.
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.
Certificate II Pre-apprenticeship & WACE Graduation
The STTC offers a fixed two-year course over Years 11 and 12 allowing students to graduate with their WACE, including the successful completion of the Certificate III Business and Certificate II Pre-apprenticeship in their chosen trade course inclusive of work experience. Courses are developed with industry input that ensures the training offered is current and relevant.
