The Sunshine Coast community will see a new senior school open in July 2018!
The AITC are excited to open a third campus in the beautiful Sunshine Coast where technically intelligent young people who want to complete their schooling can get started in a trade career of their choice.
Local industry and community leaders invited the AITC to commence a school on the Sunshine Coast because they could see the positive evidence at the other two campuses in Brisbane (Redlands) and the Gold Coast (Robina), and their effect on creating high standard young people for employers in industry.
“Our Steering Committee has been working with the AITC for two years to create this school” said Will Wilson of the Master Builders Association Qld . We are thrilled to be establishing a school created “by industry for industry outcomes”.
The AITC offers an innovative curriculum and extensive real world experience which inspires learning and a passion for work. The Sunshine Coast Campus will commence with a Year 10 cohort in July 2018 and grow to a Year 10 – 12 cohort by January 2019.
Young people complete their Year 10, 11 and 12 requirements for their Queensland Certificate of Education in our on-campus learning environment supported by a passionate and professional team of teachers, trainers, employment consultants and mentors. Pre-employment training will be provided by AITC partner TAFE Queensland. Once signed into a school-based apprenticeship, the Young People receive vocational training in a trade of their choice, delivered in partnership with industry partners with whom we nurture close relationships.
We look forward to meeting you and your young person!
