Trade Training Centres In Schools Program

​The Australian Government’s Trade Training Centres (TTCs) in Schools Program commenced in March 2008. It committed $2.5 billion over 10 years to address national skills shortages in the traditional trades and emerging industries. Schools with Years 9-12 enrolments were eligible to apply for up to $1.5 million to construct new or upgrade existing facilities and/or to purchase trade training equipment.

In Victoria, schools across sectors were supported to form clusters, in order to pool their funding to develop larger facilities offering a broader range of VET certificates. The TTC Program was a partnership between the Australian Government and each State/Territory jurisdiction as well as the Catholic and Independent school sectors’ national education authorities.

Over the life of the TTC Program, the Australian Government has committed funding of $322.8 million across 74 Victorian TTCs involving 279 secondary schools. Forty of these TTCs are led by a government school.
