Some of the great facilities you’ll find at East Geelong Campus include:

Auto centre

Specially designed to simulate the workplace, automotive apprentices work on real jobs for real clients whether it’s vehicle servicing and repair, or panel beating and painting. Our partnership with Ford also means students have access to and work on a range of late model vehicles using the latest technology including the new ‘virtual paint room’.

Construction and safety centre

Construction and safety students enjoy world-class facilities, equipped with classrooms as well as indoor and outdoor construction spaces to simulate industry environments and expectations.

Engineering and metal workshops

Our engineering department received a half-a-million dollar equipment upgrade, adding two new CNC mills and lathes to our already impressive facilities. These machines are further supported by 12 simulators allowing students to program live for precision and safety – the first for any TAFE in Victoria.

Geelong Technical Education Centre (GTEC)

The state-of-the-art $6 million GTEC facility at East Geelong Campus was purpose built with their unique program in mind. Equipped with classroom spaces, trade workshop areas, kitchen, gym, and common recreation areas, GTEC is a leader amongst Technical Education Centres in Victoria.
