Year 10 Trade Readiness Program


Why wait for tomorrow when you can start today?

Although our Trade Pathway doesn’t officially begin for students until Year 11, Cathwest is now offering a specially tailored Year 10 trade readiness program that provides students with vital skills they will use in their trade and makes the Year 10 curriculum relevant for their future learning and career.





At this stage the program has a construction focus, with the possibility of expanding in the future.




We help students make the most of Year 10 with our trade readiness program:

  • designed to link the curriculum with your trade making it more relevant

  • offering hands-on, real world learning in state-of-the-art facilities

  • providing opportunities for industry engagement at the college and relevant workplaces with industry experts and mentors

  • allowing opportunities to earn pre-apprenticeship qualifications or microcredentials AND meet your Year 10 RoSA requirements.

Offered at our McCarthy Campus in Emu Plains, our trade readiness students can go on to complete a Trade Pathway in Year 11 and 12 tailored to their unique needs, interests and passions including professional mentoring, exciting industry partnerships, School Based Apprenticeships, work placements and industry recognised qualifications.
