Enrolments for students from all education sectors are now open for the new Western Technical College at Rosewater. The Western Technical College is an expansion of the immensely popular and highly regarded Rosewater Trade Training Centre, a campus of Mount Carmel College.

Programs available for the start of 2021 include Building and Construction, Engineering and Manufacturing and Hairdressing and Beauty Services. From the start of Semester 2, 2021 the following programs will also be available: Automotive Industries, Electrotechnology and Electronics, Information and Communication Technology.

Visit wtc.sa.edu.au for all program and enrolment information.

Western Technical College provides students from Year 9 to Year 12 the opportunity to explore and acquire workplace skills through nationally recognised training described within an industry-developed training package or an accredited course. The achievement of any VET qualification delivered at Western Technical College signifies that a student has demonstrated competency against the skills and knowledge required to perform effectively in the workplace.

Students can commence training at Western Technical College at an Introductory level, ie whilst having the ability to gain 10 SACE credits at Stage 1. Progression for the next year or level (depending on the chosen course) is a Certificate II or Certificate III or partial Certificate III, which attracts Stage 1 and Stage 2 SACE credits.

The South Australian Commission for Catholic Schools, in partnership with the State Government will deliver a $5 million expansion of the Rosewater Trade Training Centre, creating a skills hub right on the doorstep of South Australia’s maritime and defence industries on the Le Fevre Peninsula.

The establishment of the Western Technical College will support South Australian students to be best placed for future jobs and will equip our young people with skill sets that align with industry needs.
