DET Trades Skills Centres

The project involved the upgrade and new build of three separate clusters of trade skills centres:  Glenala Cluster, Logan Logistical Trades Skills Centre and Gladstone Region Trades Skills Centre.

Within each cluster one school takes the lead training role, with additional schools in the region providing extra training facilities. Each cluster incorporates a number of separate school campuses and incorporates both new build and refurbishment of existing facilities.

Glenala Cluster

Glenala State High School is the lead school for the Glenala Cluster Trades Skills Centre. This Centre provides a focus on warehousing, transport and logistics and vehicle servicing in response to the established engineering and manufacturing businesses and distribution companies in the surrounding Inala and Sumner Park area. The Glenala State High School Trade Skills Centre provides career pathways to these industries through introductory trade sampling through to Certificate II level qualifications.

Additional facilities: Western Suburbs Special School, Centenary State High School, and Stretton State College

Logan Logistical Trades Skills Centre

Woodridge State High School is the lead school for the cluster and houses a new Transport and Logistics (Warehousing) training centre. The facility offers a career pathway to the warehousing industry for tracking and loading of items for transport delivery through introductory trade sampling to Certificate I and II level qualifications. The training centre also offers classes for students from Logan Special School.

Additional facilities: Browns Plains State High School

Gladstone Region Trades Skills Centre

The training facility at Gladstone State High School focuses on three main industry areas: electro technology, telecommunications, and transport, logistics and supply chain. The new facility is located in close proximity to the existing Technical College building which enables educational services integration, sharing of facilities and access to other support services.

Additional facilities: Miriam Vale State School, Mount Larcom State School, Tannum Sands State High School, and Toolooa State High School
