St Luke’s College had the honour of welcoming Mrs Alison Traine of the Pilbara Institute to present certificates at a recent college assembly in March.
Students received Certificates in Building and Construction, Engineering, Business, Information Technology, Community Services Tourism, Nursing and Beauty.
The college acknowledges the partnership it has with Pilbara Institute and is very pleased to be in a position to provide the students with a broad and varied curriculum.
Currently, St Luke’s College students are studying Certificate II in Business, Child Services, Tourism, Automotive Technology, Nursing, Media Communication and Information Technology.
Certificate III has been completed in some of these disciplines, including Community Services where last year one of our students went to Vietnam to volunteer.
Many of the students begin with Certificate I to give them a taster for the subject and perhaps then progress to higher certificates.
In addition to the VET courses available, St Luke’s College students are also engaged in school-based apprenticeships and traineeships.
A number of the students have been signed up with Apprenticeships Australia to complete these valuable courses.
One such course is the Certificate lV in Transport and Logistics being undertaken by Cody Carpenter as a part of a traineeship with Bhagwan Marine.
Cody goes on site one day a week and completes the theory part of his certificate during school.
St Luke’s has recently signed on three more students with Apprenticeships Australia and look forward to encouraging more in the future.
