Scholarships may be offered to students who are Australian residents, based on the following eligibility criteria:

Excellence- Whereby a student has demonstrated individual excellence in their schooling. Typically, students will be achieving a grade average of ‘A’.

Pathway- Whereby a student has shown dedication to their future through active participation in industry programs such as a traineeship/apprenticeship, work experience, current employment in the relevant field.

Scholarships apply a 50% discount to annual tuition fees per year but do not apply to levies or other costs e.g. uniforms and transport.

Fees and Payment Options

We understand that schooling comprises a big part of the family budget and aim to make the financial impact as minimal as possible. We strive to provide a high-quality educational environment for our students, whilst still maintaining affordable fees for our College community.

ATCNB students complete an intensified curriculum in Year 11 to prepare them for greater industry exposure in Year 12. Our annual tuition fee is charged on a ‘per-term’ basis. Fees can be paid upfront or in instalments, which we hope enables more students to enjoy the benefit of attending our unique college.

The Cadet Program is now taking enrolments!

Australian Trade College North Brisbane’s (ATCNB) Cadet Program is a unique one semester program that provides Year 10 students with the opportunity to get hands on experience in a range of trade subject areas and make an informed choice about a preferred pathway for Years 11 and 12! The Cadet Program is ideal for students who may already have an interest in a specific trade area, as well as those students who aren’t sure about what trade pathway they want to pursue. Cadets get to experience an extensive range of ATCNB’s trade offerings and find out what it would be like to pursue a career in their trade area of choice.

How does the Cadet Program work?

Commencing annually in semester 2, the Cadet Program combines literacy and numeracy academic education with a rotation of trade studies and work experience in fields such as automotive, beauty, carpentry, commercial cookery, electrotechnology, fabrication, metal fitting and plumbing. Cadet students are enrolled full time at ATCNB and will complete the program throughout the entire duration of semester 2.

For those students who aren’t sure about what career pathway they may want to pursue, the Cadet Program provides them with the opportunity to get ‘hands on’ in a range of trade areas and really experience what it would be like to work in the industry. And for those students who already have an idea about the pathway they want to pursue, the Cadet Program provides an excellent platform for them to get started! The Cadet Program includes periods of structured work experience, ensuring that students can experience what it’s really like in the workplace and understand the expectations of employers. At the completion of the Cadet Program, students will be equipped with the knowledge and experience to make an informed decision about which trade area they want to pursue in Years 11 and 12.
