Offers for enrolment will be based on students:

Apply online

When you submit your application, it will be reviewed by our team to make sure you meet the program's eligibility requirements. We'll email you once the review has been completed.

If you meet the program’s eligibility requirements, we’ll invite you to sit a core skills assessment. This will help us make sure you have the reading and numeracy skills to succeed.

We’ll contact you with information about the assessment.

If you pass the core skills assessment, we’ll invite you and your parent or carer to an interview.

We'll discuss the unique technical college model, industry training programs and expectations. This is a great opportunity for you to demonstrate your commitment and passion for careers in the industry and ask any questions you may have.

Referee statement

We’ll request that you provide a referee statement to support your application.

We’ll contact you to let you know if your application is successful and how to enrol.
