WACE Graduation

The Swan Trade Training Centre offers a fixed two-year course over Years 11 and 12. Students attend the STTC full time for all of Year 11 and 12, incorporating six separate weeks of work experience.

Swan Trade Training Centre provides students with the opportunity to:

  • Complete Years 11 and 12 in a supportive Christian school environment
  • Achieve a West Australian Certificate of Education (WACE)
  • Achieve a nationally accredited Certificate III in Business
  • Achieve a nationally accredited pre-apprenticeship qualification (Certificate II level)

In addition to their chosen trade course, all Swan Trade Training Centre students will complete a fixed set of courses that are designed to complement their trade studies with content specifically tailored for the trade context.  All students complete units in Math, English, Certificate III in Business, Technical Graphics, Workplace Learning, Christian Living and Physical Education.

Hospitality students are offered a wider choice of subjects, as their WACE studies are completed through regular classes at Swan Christian College.

Importantly, WACE courses are delivered in ways that connect students with their chosen trades thereby increasing relevance and engagement.
