'Building our Future'
The Mackay Christian College Trade Training Centre (MCCTTC) offers a unique program for Year 11 & 12 students, who would like to add foundational, practical understanding and abilities to their skills set or who are pursuing a trade career. With strong industry links, experienced staff and a purpose-built facility, the MCCTTC allows students to develop their trade skills while working toward their Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE).
MCCTTC has a strong focus on work readiness, providing students with industry exposure to form their career pathways and develop their employability skills. Students can achieve success in their core studies while gaining a Vocational Certificate in Engineering and the industry knowledge and skills in the applied subject, Building and Construction Skills, and/or engaging in a School Based Apprenticeship or Traineeship.
Industry value work experience highly and have provided feedback that they would like to see a minimum of two work experience placements on a student’s resume over two years of senior schooling. MCCTCC provides opportunity for Trade Pathway (fulltime) students to complete a minimum of seven work experience placements during Years 11 & 12.
Industry Training Areas:
Building and Construction Skills (Applied subject)

Our Goal is to see MCCTTC students making successful transitions from school to fulltime, meaningful employment or further training.
