More places for vocational training in schools

A NEW partnership between TAFE Queensland East Coast and the Fraser Coast Education Alliance will allow Fraser Coast high school students more scope when pursuing their careers.

The move marks an increase in the number of Vocational Education and Training in Schools places on offer in the region as TAFE Queensland East Coast joins existing members made up of an education network of all high schools in the Fraser Coast region, the University of Southern Queensland and the Fraser Coast Regional Council.

"In this instance we have been able to come alongside the secondary schools and TAFE East Coast to improve outcomes for those students engaged in VETiS," Simon Boss-Walker, deputy chair of FCEA said.

Courses range from Certificate I in Construction to Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care as well as Certificate II in Sport and Recreation and Certificate II in Kitchen Operations.

TAFE Queensland East Coast programs will be on offer to high schools in Maryborough and Hervey Bay.
