Teaching new skills

LOWER Clarence high school students now have access to a state-of-the-art trade training facility following the opening of the $1.3 million Lower Clarence Trade Centre yesterday.

Construction of the centre, which includes a construction workshop and engineering workshop, was made possible by a Federal Government grant as part of the Trade Training Centres in Schools program.

After officially opening the centre, Duty Senator for Cowper Matt Thistlethwaite said the centre was already having an impact on the lives of local students.

"This trade training facility will provide industry relevant training in various industries, including qualifications in boat building, construction and engineering that will best prepare our students for the highly skilled workforce of tomorrow," he said.

The centre will help address skills shortages in the trades of boat builder and repairer, motor mechanic, welder, carpenter, metal fabricator and metal machinist.
