Futures programs

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
  • Cert II Manufacturing Processes
  • Either Cert II Process Plant Operations; Cert II Construction Pathways; Cert II Resources Infrastructure Operations or a school-based apprenticeship
  • CAD Operations

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.

For more information about the course, see the Senior Handbook (PDF, 685 KB).

Successful students will complete nationally recognised training in Agriculture (Certificate II), Cert II in Engineering and Agricultural Practices (Subject Area Specification). Students will also participate in industry placement whilst also studying Math and English.
