Mayor Karen Williams and Australian Industry Trade College CEO Mark Hands cut the ribbon on a tree that will be planted on the new Redland campus, at a launch of the project last week.A NEW college campus for Redland City is set to expand training and employment opportunities for young people in south east Queensland.
The Australian Industry Trade College (AITC) was established in 2008 at Robina on the Gold Coast and since then, its combination of senior schooling, trade skilling and apprenticeships has helped to deliver more than 1030 full-time apprenticeships to young Queenslanders.
The college was launched by CEO Mark Hands at a luncheon attended by mayor Karen Williams, Redland City councillors and local business and education leaders at Sirromet Winery.
He said Redland City made the perfect choice with the support of Cr Williams and community leaders helping to drive the introduction of the Redlands campus.
Mr Hands said the AITC offered an efficient, portable schooling model that was based on strong partnerships with industry leaders and employers, registered training organisations and all levels of government.
“We feel incredibly excited about our plans and hope to have some big announcements in coming weeks as we firm up our Redlands partnerships and begin to establish a real presence on the ground,” Mr Hands said.
The AITC was a private, independent school with a learning program developed in collaboration with industry to meet targeted, industry needs.
He said the vollege’s mission was to deliver high caliber, motivated, hard working apprentices and trainees who add value in the workplace.
