Try A Trade Information

Deciding what to do after school can be a difficult decision and some students aren’t aware of all the options available to them.  The Swan Trade Training Centre Try A Trade event provides Year 10 students with an opportunity to 'have a go' at various skill and trade occupations. Try a Trade is offered at no cost to students.

The activities are entertaining, informative and offer interested students access to some of the basic skills involved in the trades of Electrotechnology, Metal Fabrication, and Welding and Carpentry.

The Try a Trade event seeks to:

  • Motivate students through a fun, hands-on experience.
  • Share current and honest information about future career choices.
  • Encourage participants to appreciate that skill education and training offer real choices for the future.
  • Allow students to meet and talk with trade professionals, apprentices, VET teachers / trainers / lecturers and local industry people.

The event is held for Year 10 students over two days and participants must attend all sessions, as the idea is to try each trade.  All sessions are free. Eye and ear protection is provided, however students must wear closed in shoes (steel cap boots if possible), long pants and a long sleeve shirt.
