Try a Trade at SCCVC

In 2019 Southern Cross Catholic Vocational College will be running a large number of TRY A TRADE days for students from Catholic Schools throughout Sydney interested in learning more about the range of Vocational Education and Training (VET) Courses available at the College.

You can apply here

In total 24 days spread over 6 weeks will be offered to students in secondary schools. Generally they will be open to students in Years 8, 9 and 10 and preference will be given to applicants from Years 10, then Year 9 if we cannot accommodate all of those interested.

The number of days which students can attend is limited to the number of spaces available and the subject to both Parent/Carer and School Approval. Students are requested to only apply for 1, 2 or 3 days so we can maximise the number of students receiving this opportunity. Additionally we ask students to prioritise their preferred day/s in order so we can take this into account when confirming acceptances.
