Students studying at the Australian Industry Trade College (AITC) earn while they learn by achieving their Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE) and commencing a school based apprenticeship.
The goal of the College is to give young people the best of both worlds. That is, the completion of their senior education while they commence their apprenticeship with significant work experience.
The College implements a unique curriculum which allows young people to study senior QCE courses for five weeks, followed by seven weeks full time as an Australian school based apprentice in the real world of industry.
Our students complete their apprenticeships with real world training with employers across Australia.
Upon graduation from the AITC, the young people will achieve their Queensland Certificate of Education and have commenced their apprenticeship in a trade of choice.
On completion of Grade 12, they will transition into a full time apprenticeship or traineeship with approximately one third of their apprenticeship time completed (assuming that their performance and attitude has, and continues to, meet the required expectations of the employer).
Over 90% of the AITC graduates have transitioned into full time employment in their trade since 2008.
AITC has a three step enrolment process that ensures new students are a perfect fit for our curriculum and school. The process includes:
