St Patrick’s Technical College
St Patrick’s Technical College is a purpose built, multi-million dollar, specialist trade training school. We offer a trade focused South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE) curriculum and award winning pre-apprenticeship training for Year 11 and 12 students.
We specialise in developing individual programs for students who wish to complete their SACE in conjunction with a School-based Apprenticeship.
Trade focused curriculum:
The SACE curriculum at St Patrick’s has been developed specifically to support the trades in which we deliver pre-vocational training.
The core subjects of Maths, English and Science are taught in a way that makes them relevant to each specific trade program. These subjects have been developed with direct input from industry and in association with TAFE SA.
The College embeds the subject of Workplace Practices across all programs assisting students to develop interview, resume writing, goal setting, teamwork, communication and employability skills.
Fundraising for Catholic Charities:
The contribution made by St Patrick’s Technical College to Catholic Charities came from the funds raised through the recycling of cans and bottles around the college. By doing this, we are living out two of our core College Values – Serving others and Respecting our environment.
Catholic Charities thanks the students for their dedicated work in both recycling and helping others.
