Want a career in electrical? The Energy Academy is wired for you!

The Energy Academy is Brisbane’s first industry-driven program for high school students wishing to pursue a career in the Electricity Industry.

You won’t see anything like it in Queensland and there’s no better way for a young person to get a head start than with the Energy Academy.

OPEN DAY

Embark on your career in Year 10 or 11

Year 10 Foundation: This is offered from any of our six AITC campuses – exposure, exploration and immersion in the electricity supply industry.
Year 11 Academy Specialisation: This is offered only from the AITC Brisbane campus – technical training, work experience with a consortium of employers and a contextualised education program.

The program is a combination of deliberately different education, industry-driven training, and technical expertise to develop apprentices of the highest calibre. The offerings are much broader than your typical electrician. The Academy will open opportunities that young people may not realise are available, but with an employer everyone knows.

Benefits of the Academy Program
  1. Unique schooling with a mix of classroom learning, structured work experience, technical training, shadowing and employment, contextualised to an electrical pathway
  2. A deliberate and careful exposure to safety standards and best practice – safety is our first thought
  3. Up to a year’s head start on your school-based apprenticeship or traineeship by Year 12 graduation
What’s different from the standard AITC program?

We know that a young person’s success in industry is a result of their strength of character, a bespoke education program, high quality training and qualifications, and our unique employability coaching and mentoring.

Young people spend five weeks a term in school and seven weeks in industry.

The program will focus on character, values and development and exposure to the electrical industry. Work experience and immersion in a breadth of opportunities within the industry allows young people to develop key skills and understanding before commencing a school-based apprenticeship/traineeship.

It’s about setting up Queensland’s brightest sparks to have a successful and sustainable career. We do this by providing a deliberately different, industry-driven educational experience, because when young people thrive, we know communities, industries and economies do too.
