This week is National Skills Week. The week is dedicated to raising the status of practical and vocational learning. Many senior secondary school students in Catholic Schools, Catholic Technical Colleges and Catholic Trade Training Centre, undertake VET qualifications as part of their SACE learning. Catholic Education South Australia supports the skill development of all students.
A wonderful partnership between Western Technical College and Barkuma has created the Trade2Transition Program. The Trade2Transition program has been designed especially for Year 12 students enrolled in the Barkuma Transition program, who are considering their next step into the world of work. The Barkuma trainees are exploring the Construction and Metal Engineering industries, in a supportive adult learning environment, designed to celebrate adaptability and encourage long life growth.
