About the AITC

At the Australian Industry Trade College, we help your young person find their passion and then pursue that career through an apprenticeship or traineeship. Years 10, 11 and 12 students spend half their time completing their senior education at school and the other half in industry, with the aim of attaining a Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE) and an employment outcome in the industry of their choice by the time they graduate Year 12.

Our Brisbane campus

The Australian Industry Trade College (AITC) is opening a Brisbane campus for Year 10 young people in January 2022 in Spring Hill. The Leichhardt Street campus is currently undergoing renovations, so information sessions are held at a conference facility in the area.
