A technical college is being built at Findon High School – one of five new technical colleges across South Australia.

Run in conjunction with the high school, the new technical college will support students in years 10 to 12 to complete their SACE while undertaking vocational education and training (VET) in specialist state-of-the-art facilities.

 

Industry focus areas

Findon Technical College will offer learning programs in the following industry focus areas

  • Early Childhood Education and Care
  • Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering
  • Health and Social Care

BAE Systems Australia has committed to being an employer partner in the delivery of the Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering industry focus area.

 

Learning programs

The learning program for each industry focus area will have common features that develop the skills, knowledge and behaviours students need to transition into apprenticeships, traineeships or entry level employment, or progress on to further or higher education.

Learning programs will be co-designed and delivered with industry partners to meet the technical, employability and language, literacy and numeracy skills needed by industry so students are work-ready by the time they complete the learning program.

 

Eligibility and enrolment

The technical college will cater for around 200 full time students. The technical college will accept enrolments from both public and private schools. The technical college will accept enrolments from both public and private schools.
