Trade Futures

Dalby SHS's Trade Training Centre is a state-of-the-art facility purpose built for training skilled employers to enter the resources, engineering and manufacturing industries.

The course is a two year course of study and is extremely popular.  The program includes:

  • Maths
  • English
  • Pastoral Care
  • Cert II Engineering MEM20105
  • Industrial Skills Graphics
  • Cert II Engineering (Pathways) MEM20413 [external RTO]
  • Cert II Automotive (Vocational Preparation) AUR10116 [external RTO]

  • or a school-based apprenticeship

Each student  within the Trade Futures Program is 'adopted' by at least 2 local industry mentors where they engage in regular work on site within our "Industry Mentor Program".  This program allows students to take their skills and apply them within a real industry environment.  It also allows our students to market their individual skills to potential employers on a regular basis. Approx. 85% of our students were able to secure School Based Apprenticeships in 2012 through this mentoring program in trades such as Diesel Fitting, Mould/Pattern Making, Construction (Steel), Electrical, Boiler Making, Fitting and Turning and Sheet Metal.
