SAS Funding Success
If you have read my recent newsletter articles you would now know we have been working towards the development of a more flexible curriculum for our Stage 6 (Year 11 & 12) students. This flexible curriculum recently commenced with the introduction for 2014 of an extra VET course at Shoalhaven Anglican School – Primary Industries – Horticulture, the development of 4 elearning courses and the ability for SAS students to access two further VET courses, Entertainment Industries and Information and Digital Technology at Nowra Anglican College.
It is with great pleasure that I am able to announce today that we have been successful in gaining $541,000 in funding from the Federal Government as a part of the Trade Training Centres program to complete the implementation of Primary Industries – Horticulture and to develop during 2014 and introduce in 2015, two further VET courses, Construction Pathways and Electrotechnology. This will see the commencement of Shoalhaven Region Anglican Trade Training Centre.
Mr Shields, the Chairman of Shoalhaven Region Anglican Schools explained “This funding will pay for remodelling and re-equipping of specialist facilities at Milton for the delivery of these courses. Both schools will install classrooms with video conferencing facilities to enable students to undertake theoretical instruction at each location, reducing travel times. Funding this project signals the establishment of a regional trade skills hub that will address some of the economic challenges of the region. It will increase access for students to trade qualifications, traineeships and future school based apprenticeships.”
The introduction of these courses will provide a highly flexible Stage 6 curriculum for our students. Once established across our schools, the Trade Training Centre will negotiate to expand to other trades and to offer further qualifications up to and including Certificate III which lead to pathways to direct employment. It means that students finish school with both an HSC and a start towards a trade qualification, maximising future career options.
Executive Principal, Mrs Lorrae Sampson has said, “The TTC will enable local employers to provide input into the training of students via their industry expertise and work placement programs, thus providing local employers with highly skilled and knowledgeable employees. Our existing relationship with TAFE and other RTOs will be enhanced by the TTC and provide students with direct pathways into further education and training.”
The Shoalhaven Region Anglican Trade Training Centre continues our commitment to developing young people who have a lifelong love of learning and are ready and willing to be change makers in their community.
If you have any questions regarding the trade training centre or any other matter please do not hesitate to contact me via return email.
