Trade Courses Australia

As part of our unique integrated approach to learning, the Australian Trade College North Brisbane (ATCNB) has unique partnerships with three specialised Registered Training Organisations to deliver trade courses for our Cadets, Year 11 and 12 school students on our Scarborough site.

Courses For Trades

At ATCNB, you won’t just do a trade course, you will do a course that will give you actual experience in your trade.

Students enrol in specialised pre-apprenticeship VET trade courses supported with regular periods of external vocational work experience placements. Each student receives individual and group training. With this approach, it has been proven that students secure employment outcomes upon graduation. The training partners ensure an employment direction is provided to our student’s future.


Qualified & Experienced Tradie Trainers

All our Trade Trainers are qualified and highly experienced tradespeople with education qualifications. They hold relevant trade qualifications and have extensive industry experience as tradies which is updated on a yearly basis by their return to industry to ensure they have the most up-to-date knowledge to pass onto the students.

Trainers work collaboratively and independently with students to foster strategies that will overcome relevant barriers that are identified during the student enrolment process with ATCNB.

Trainers provide mentoring and skills development for all students whilst allowing them to express and develop their creativity and innovation whilst providing the professional direction.


Apprenticeship Preparation Programs

Our  training partners deliver all of our pre-apprenticeship or traineeship programs and project based work for our Year 11 and 12 school students two days per week over 18-months providing them the opportunity to experience some of the challenges that trades men and women in each of the respective industries face on a daily basis. Each qualification provides a range of basic skills as a starting place to build a career in their chosen trade or as a stepping stone towards an apprenticeship or tertiary study options including university.
