What’s so great about GTEC?

More than just secondary schooling

GTEC’s integrated approach means students have the potential to receive multiple qualifications, plus gain a head start into their chosen trade apprenticeship or career path. In just two years they could achieve: 

  • a VCAL Foundation, Intermediate or Senior certificate (equivalent to Year 11 and 12)
  • credit towards a Certificate III in Manufacturing Technology (CAD/drafting)
  • a full Certificate II qualification OR the first two years of a Certificate III qualification (dependent on the chosen field) – this can also reduce the educational component of a full apprenticeship or traineeship


  • a minimum 12 weeks work experience through SWL (Structured Workplace Learning)
  • the possibility of a School-based Apprenticeship or Traineeship with an employer in a chosen field.
