About us

The Sunshine Coast Technical Trade Training Centre (SCTTTC) was purpose built in 2010, to focus on senior student pathways into the construction industry. Our centre is situated directly behind Caloundra State High School and was intentionally constructed at the southern end of the Sunshine Coast to capitalise on the upcoming expansion of this area.

Commencing with a small cohort of students from only four ‘founding partner schools’ namely Beerwah State High School, Caloundra State High School, Kawana Waters State College and Meridan State College, SCTTTC has experienced enormous growth since opening in 2011. Currently our secondary students attend from a broad geographical area across the Sunshine Coast ranging from Beerwah through to Noosa and encompass students from 30 different schools, both state and private.

Our students attend SCTTTC one day per week to undertake their chosen certificate course whilst completing a normal school timetable, at their base school on the remaining four days of the week. Classes commence at SCTTTC each day from 8.30am and conclude at 3.00pm.

SCTTTC offers pathways through a range of trade and technical training areas for students in years 11 and 12. Programs are designed to provide students with practical training in their chosen field as well as providing valuable employability skills and opportunities to link with industry and accredited training providers.

Training at the SCTTTC combines with student learning programs that are negotiated in their Senior Education and Training planning (SET Plan). Student pathways include a combination of school, SCTTTC and work placement designed to support students and tailored to meet individual needs. We have a heavy focus on job readiness preparation through engagement with industry mentors and ‘on the job’ experience spent in the workplace.

It is because SCTTTC offers specific, quality course delivery and successfully achieves a high percentage of student employment outcomes that we are now well regarded in community, industry and the education sector.

Our focus is to provide students with valuable, quality training ensuring a high standard of employable young people with real trade skills making them ‘work ready’ and ‘a step ahead of the rest’.
