The South Gippsland Trade Skills Alliance is a partnership of schools and Registered Training Organisations which offers students access to VET programs in; Agriculture, Horticulture, Automotive, Carpentry, Electrical and Plumbing at Certificate III level.
Students undertaking any of these programs at the South Gippsland Trade Skills Centre will follow a ‘blended learning model’ which will include access to training via a combination of on-line learning materials, video conferencing learning sessions and direct tuition with ‘hands on’ activities.
This combination of experiences offers a significant shift in approach and the capacity to target students learning needs whilst reducing time students are out of their base school.
Schools in the Alliance:
Foster Secondary College, Mirboo North Secondary College, Korumburra Secondary College, Leongatha Secondary College, South Gippsland Specialist School, Chairo Christian School and Mary MacKillop Catholic Regional College. Wonthaggi Secondary College.
Registered Training Organisations in the Alliance:
TAFE Gippsland, Apprenticeships Group Australia (AGA), Community College Gippsland (CCG).
Given that each of the targeted industry areas has been identified as offering strong employment opportunities in the South Gippsland economy, this is a significant program opportunity for students in this area.
