$209m for Round Five of the Trade Training Centres in Schools Program

High school students will be able to try their hand at a range of skills with the Trade Training in Schools Program.

More students across Australia will be able to take advantage of high-quality trade training facilities that will help create opportunities for future employment through the Round Five funding of the Trade Training Centres in Schools Program.

Around 225 schools will benefit from more than $209 million in funding, incorporating 137 projects. Round Five (Phase One) of the program will feature projects from the carpentry, metal fabrication, carpentry and joinery, and agriculture and horticulture industries.

Eligible secondary schools are offered a “broader range” of vocational education and training options under this program, encompassing students from years nine to 12.

The training centres are helping to address national skills shortages in trade areas such as food and hospitality, mechanical and industrial engineering and technology, and building.

Students partaking in these projects may also be given more direction on the future career they want to pursue and take the next step to pursue school-based apprenticeships.

Qualifications may also be offered by the centres in other occupations that have emerging trade needs or regional skill shortages, such as laboratory skills, the resources industry, and aged care and allied health.
