Nationally accredited training to address skill shortages...
In 2014, the $3.3 million Rosewater Trade Training Centre opened.
Funded by the Commonwealth Government's Trade Training Centres in Schools initiative, the centre was a collaboration between Mount Carmel College, Nazareth Catholic College and St Michael's College. Its mandate was to provide nationally accredited training to secondary students to address skill shortages in targeted industries and trades.
A Government of South Australia and Catholic Education partnership...
In 2020, Catholic Education and the Government of South Australia announced a new initiative: Western Technical College. The jointly funded project is an expansion of the Rosewater Trade Training Centre and will increase training opportunities and address skills shortages within the flagship industries based in the western precinct of Adelaide.
We are an ambitious community committed to enabling the innate potential of young people. Together we can make a valuable and powerful contribution to South Australia’s workforce and future development.
Western Technical College is a joint initiative of Catholic Church Endowment Society Incorporated and the South Australian Commission for Catholic Schools and has been developed in partnership with the State Government of South Australia and the Mount Carmel College Community including the Rosewater Trade Training Centre and its partnership with the Federal Government.
