The Trades Academy has been created in response to the growing need for vocational skills and employment for our Akonga. The courses within the Trades Academy are specifically designed to create pathways into further training, apprenticeships and employment. Theory and practical activities are balanced to provide maximum opportunity for students to become work ready while experiencing a variety of options within the Trades.
The theory components of these courses are specifically designed to relate directly to the practical experiences students are engaged with and enhance understanding through authentic, associative learning. Students are then supported into work placements to apply their learning in the real world.
