Dorset Trade Training Centre
The Tasmanian Polytechnic has worked closely with Scottsdale High School to
secure $3.4 million in Australian Government funding to build a new multi-trade
training facility which is located on the Scottsdale High School site.
Called the Dorset Trade Training Centre,
it will improve access to trade training for year 9 - 12 students as well as
mature-age students from the wider community. The need for such a facility is
critically important for industry in the region to address local skill shortages
in traditional trades and the needs of emerging industries.
Real Training for Real Jobs
The Trade Training Centre provides real training for real jobs. Students are
involved in practical training so that they leave the centre with the skills
they need to be ready for a job. People enrolled in the centre also get career
advice and help making the move into a job or further training.
The centre is equipped to provide training in building and construction,
electrotechnology, brick laying, plumbing, engineering, wood, machining, metals
What is included in the Dorset Trade Training Centre
Three workshop areas: building and construction; common workshop
for non-metals; common workshop for metals, as well as an
Outdoor learning area featuring a multi-use sandpit (e.g. for
pipe laying and foundation work), wash-down area and materials
Industry standard equipment and facilities
