Trade Training Pathways Project

Yeronga State High School, QLD

Brisbane, Qld

About half of Yeronga State High School’s students have recently arrived in Australia as refugees and asylum seekers – a few without parents, some after long stays in detention centres, most without English but all seeking a better future in their new home.

Through the Trade Training Pathways project supported by Schools Plus in 2015, about 140 of the school’s students in Years 10, 11 and 12 will study a range of trade subjects to give them better job prospects post-school. With the grant, the school will purchase equipment so the students can manufacture high-grade furniture such as bookshelves and TV units, and set up a small business selling their products. The school will also partner with Blue Dog Training to organise industry placements and school-based apprenticeships, leading to increased employment opportunities in the construction and engineering industries.
