Try a Trade at SCCVC

Try A Trade is BACK!

In 2020 Southern Cross Catholic Vocational College will be running a number of TRY A TRADE days for students who are interested in learning more about the range of Vocational Education and Training (VET) Courses available at the College.

In total 20 days spread over Term 2, Term 3 and Term 4 will be offered to students in secondary schools. The courses will be open to students in Years 8, 9 and 10 and preference will be given to applicants from Year 10.

The number of days which students can attend is limited to the number of spaces available and are subject to both Parent/Carer and School Approval. Students are requested to only apply for only 1 or 2 days so we can maximise the number of students receiving these opportunities.

The schedule of days/dates and courses available in 2020 is set out below:

DATES: Term 2 Week 9

Business Services : Friday 26 June 2020

Information & Digital Technology : Friday 26 June 2020
