Industry Ready!

VET Overview Term 3

Term 3 has witnessed the largest number of students in the past 8 years participating in the General Construction Induction Training (White Card) and Asbestos Awareness Training. With over 30 students getting industry ready, these students are equipped with the necessary knowledge and training to keep them safe when entering the trade industry, capable of assessing risk, hazardous materials and identifying hazardous and potentially dangerous situations. Both qualifications are the base line requirement when engaging in work experience in the trade industry and when undertaking an Australian School Based Apprenticeship (ASBA).
