TAFE, Tech and Apprenticeships
TAFE Queensland North
TAFE Queensland North provides vocational education and training to more than 14,700 local, interstate and international students annually. Students are enrolled in over 200 training programs ranging from Certificate through to Advanced Diploma level. The Institute also delivers training in traditional trade areas to more than 2,000 apprentices and trainees annually.
TAFE Queensland North currently works closely with business and organisations of all sizes across Northern Queensland to provide customised training options. Training in this mode can be delivered as accredited (nationally recognised) or non-accredited with most of this delivery occurring in the workplace.
Tec-NQ is a leading educational and training organisation providing innovative and flexible solutions in Townsville North Queensland. As an independent school, a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) and a Group Training Organisation (GTO) Tec-NQ delivers a holistic approach to trade training.
Tec-NQ’s flagship school-based program has helped hundreds of young people get their start in trade-based careers by delivering a contextualised Year 11 and 12 curriculum and developing the employability skills necessary to transition students from school to work.
State-of-the-art training facilities and workshops allow trainers to provide a simulated work environment and branches throughout remote Northern Queensland allow Tec-NQ to bring training to regional centres.
Townsville Creative Technologies College (TCTC)
The Townsville Creative Technologies College (TCTC) is a Digital Trade Training Centre that was co-developed by Heatley Secondary College in partnership with the region’s creative digital industries.
The TCTC delivers nationally-accredited training at Certificate I through to Certificate III (and eventually in Certificate IV) in a specific range of creative industry technology, business, design and production areas.
Students at the TCTC are inspired to create and break new ground as required by a skilled and enterprising labour pool. They are challenged to build their capacity to find creative solutions for graphic design, print, publishing, interactive entertainment, web design, simulation, digital imaging, animation, filmmaking, editing, audio and music production.
These are the digital trade skills that service the ideas and design industries critical to the economic, social, environmental and sustainable development of our future
