At the Australian Industry Trade College, Year 10, 11 and 12 students complete their senior education and start their school based apprenticeships. Whilst completing their Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE), our young people begin paid apprenticeships in the trade career of their choice.

Hi Andrew I would just like to thank you firstly for the meeting you had with my wife and myself back in 2014 and offering our son an opportunity to attend the Australian Industry Trade College after he did not put in an effect on his first attempt during your camp training. We cannot thank and praise all the staff that we dealt with at the AITC over the two years that he attended there.  The professionalism, worth ethic and ability to help not only our son but all the young adults there at that time. The college curriculum and...

Firstly I would like to thank AITC for not only putting on a fantastic formal and graduation but for giving my son the tools to transition into the big wide world. I truly do not believe we would be in such a positive position now had we not made the move to AITC. It has been a magnificent experience not only for Jack but also for us as his parents. Again thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your endless work with all the students.

I have no doubt that the staff and students are still buzzing. The quality of the young people is a great example of what...

We took him out last Friday night to celebrate the completion of his TAFE course and he said to us, “Thank God for AITC. If it wasn’t for AITC, I’d still be doing the carpentry course.” He realizes he has fast tracked his trade....

Employer 2017

I must say I was very disappointed to read the two negative feedbacks from parents in the attached newsletter. Some parents are truly expecting too much from the AITC and just are not getting the bigger picture. Our family on the other hand truly cannot thank your wonderful team of dedicated staff enough. From the professional way you conducted the orientation night at Bond University to the enormous amount of preparation and help given to our son in finding work experience, was completely over and above what we expected. Our son and I have had to contact Brad on a...
