As a parent, I can proudly say that my son’s first year at AITC has been nothing short of transformative. From the moment he stepped onto the Redlands campus, he has been supported in an environment that has nurtured his academic and personal growth.

AITC’s young-person centric approach has been instrumental in shaping my son’s development. He feels empowered to take charge of his learning and explore his interests. The practical learning approach has given him a deep understanding of his chosen trade, while also developing his critical thinking and problem-solving skills.

I am particularly grateful for AITC’s commitment to fostering a sense of community. My son feels a sense of belonging that has been invaluable to his overall well-being.

As a parent, I couldn’t be prouder of the young man my son has become during this year at AITC. He is engaged, motivated and confident in his ability to pursue his dreams. I am grateful to the entire college community for their unwavering support and guidance. Thank you for empowering my son to reach his full potential.

CJ was recently signed-up with the energetic and dedicated team at Shark Plumbing on the Gold Coast. When he began work experience placement with Shark Plumbing, he knew this was the team he wanted to complete his apprenticeship with. He put in the hours and proved his commitment working throughout his summer holidays — reaping the reward when the apprenticeship contract was signed to be a school-based plumber’s apprentice 

“The AITC helped me find my place in an industry that excites me. I enjoy going to school as it is the best of both worlds – being able to finish school and gain experience on the job. At the AITC, you can definitely find the right fit for you. Having a trade can take you all over the world.

My daughter is considering electrical or a diesel fitting pathway. The great thing is she can try both industries before she has to decide. She always knew she wanted a practical job and didn’t want to go to university and the AITC is the perfect pathway to choose an apprenticeship and still get QCE.

She has gained so much confidence since starting at the AITC and it is so much more fun than traditional school. They are on excursions so often and she loves the TAFE tasters. She said it is the best school community – everyone shows respect and genuinely cares for each other. She said she has the best teachers she has ever had. Loves having no homework. The best school ever!

I am the parent of a Year 10 Sunshine Coast rookie and I just wanted to pass on my thanks for giving the kids a fantastic camp! My son has not stopped talking about it and has clearly come home with a ‘can-do’ attitude. He has come home with some meaningful life lessons and a self-belief in his ability to achieve great things!  He is excited to go to school next week and that is the first time I’ve ever heard him say that!!

Please pass on my thanks and appreciation to all involved.

As a parent of two of your previous students (one at Redlands campus and one at Ipswich), I personally recommend AITC as the school of the future to all parents who want great employment outcomes and personal development inclusive of leadership qualities in your young person.
