Industry training programs
Findon Technical College offers industry training programs in:
- advanced manufacturing and engineering (for defence and other sectors)
- health and social support
- early childhood and education.
All of our programs include VET qualifications.
We chose our industry specialisations for their historic and continuing importance to society. There is high demand for skilled workers in these areas in SA, Australia and around the world. We expect this trend to continue well into the future.
Each industry training program will cover:
- technical skills
- core skills and capabilities
- work experience and workplace learning
- employability skills
- career education
- pastoral care and mentoring.
RTO and employer partners
We will work with registered training organisations (RTOs) and employers in relevant industries to develop and deliver the industry training programs. This will help students develop the skills and knowledge that employers actually need.
BAE Systems Australia has committed to being an employer partner in the delivery of the advanced manufacturing and engineering industry training program.
We'll announce other RTO and employer partners soon.
