Trade Skills Centres Program

The Trades Skills Centres in Schools (TSC) program, formerly Trade Training Centres, is a part of the Australian Government’s Education Revolution.
The program commenced in 2008 to enable secondary schools to apply for funding of between $500,000 and $1.5 million for Trades Skills Centres.

The Program allows secondary students from years 9 to 12 to access vocational education and training through TSCs
to give them a broader range of options so as to improve Year 12 retention rates and enhance pathways into vocational careers.
TSCs are also helping to address national skills shortages in traditional trades and emerging industries.
