Discover St Patrick’s Technical College

St Patrick’s Technical College

Every student who attends St Patrick’s Technical College is amazingly gifted and talented. Our focus is to provide a different style of education, accommodating students who love to work with their hands and helping find a pathway they are passionate about.

Our Year 10 to 12 students are inspired to use their unique gifts and talents to discover they really are capable learners. With a new sense of hope and value, this encourages them to be thriving young adults with the confidence to go out and develop meaningful and lifelong pathways to successful employment and future industry leadership.

Thinking About VET Differently

Vocational Education and Training (VET) prepares young people for apprenticeships or employment in a skilled trade area. The College offers eight pre-apprenticeship VET programs, along with a comprehensive work experience program, to enable students a deeper understanding and experience of their chosen trade. This provides students with a greater skillset leading to employment opportunities in current and future trades.

The College’s SACE curriculum has been developed specifically to support the pre-vocational training. Our educational model allows for the complete integration of SACE with VET, with core subjects taught in a way that makes them relevant to each specific trade program. These subjects have been developed with direct input from industry.

The College specialises in developing individual programs for students who wish to complete their SACE in conjunction with a School Based Apprenticeship.
