to prepare students for work in an ever-changing world.
The college is now looking for business partners to help drive P-TECH, which stands for Pathways in Technology.
Principal Paul Mathews says: “We want industry to help students get the high-level trade qualifications and skill sets needed now and into the future for a good, fulfilling career.”
P-TECH is centred on STEM – science, technology, engineering and maths, subjects that are increasingly in demand.
Students will continue to study for their NT Certificate of Education, which will feature technical and vocational education components.
P-TECH students will then extend their studies beyond secondary school for two years to achieve a STEM-related, job-relevant certificate, diploma, advanced diploma or associate degree.
Twenty five national companies have already signed up to be a part of P-TECH.
