Enrolments Open at Western Technical College

Enrolments for the new Western Technical College at Rosewater are now open.

The new college will create a skills hub right on the doorstep of South Australia’s maritime and defence industries on the Le Fevre Peninsula.

The South Australian Commission for Catholic Schools, in partnership with the State

Government, is delivering the $5 million expansion of the highly regarded Rosewater Trade Training Centre.

Programs available for the start of 2021 include:

  • Building and Construction
  • Engineering
  • Manufacturing
  • Hairdressing and Beauty Services

From the start of semester 2, 2021 the following programs will also be available:

  • Automotive Industries
  • Electrotechnology and Electronics
  • Information and Communication Technology

“We are excited to be working in partnership with the State Government to deliver a vocational education pathway for secondary students across Catholic, government and independent schools,” said Dr Neil McGoran, Director of Catholic Education South Australia

“We will leverage strong existing partnerships with industry and trade across SA to ensure that young people are job-ready and armed with the skills they need to succeed in these growth employment areas.”

Western Technical College provides students from Year 9 to Year 12 the opportunity to explore and acquire workplace skills through nationally recognised training described within an industry-developed training package or an accredited course.

The establishment of the Western Technical College will support South Australian students to be best placed for future jobs and will equip our young people with skill sets that align with industry needs.
