AITC Spring Hill to Open for Year 10 to 12 Students

Australian Industry Trade College Spring Hill is set to welcome Year 10 to 12 students who want to earn their QLD Certificate of Education or get started on paid apprenticeships in their chosen industry.

AITC Spring Hill, located on Leichhardt Street, is the inaugural school in Brisbane but the trade college also has five other locations across Queensland in Toowoomba, the Sunshine Coast, Redlands, Ipswich, and the Gold Coast campus, which opened in 2008. 

AITC has been producing industry leaders in aviation, commercial cookery, construction, education, hair and beauty, health, manufacturing, and transportation due to its unique curriculum. The students learn from an actual work environment, instead of workshops or seminars, as they complete their high school education.

The school partners with various companies during an average of five to seven weeks of learning per term. 

With a target opening in January 2022, the Spring Hill location has opened information sessions so parents and students can fully understand the AITC experience. The sessions require online booking to ensure everyone’s safety.

“The AITC provides young people with the opportunity to try their hand at a handful of different trades if they are not sure which career to pursue, and many will trial multiple industries.”

Despite the pandemic, 99 per cent of AITC’s graduates completed their Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE) and 90% had started paid apprenticeships, according to CEO Mark Hands.
