Tec-Prep has been developed in response to key work-related issues facing young people today and into the future. This is a world-leading, future-oriented Program, equal in quality, value and rigour to more traditional academic programs. The difference is that Trades will be the goal.
The Australian Government has invested $5.1 million to pilot the P-TECH model in Australia*. In 2016, Tec-NQ was selected as one of fourteen pilot schools across the country to establish a P-TECH (Pathways to Technology) program in partnership with local industry.
The program introduces emerging technologies through the 2018 Y10 Tec-PREP program from which up to 20 students will be selected to participate in an exclusive senior school STEM pilot introduced in alignment with the trade programs commencing in 2019.
*The Australian Government Department of Education and Training has engaged the Skilling Australia Foundation to assist local stakeholders to work together to implement P-TECH learning programs at all 14 P-TECH pilot sites.
