Trade Training Centre

The McCarthy Catholic Trade Training Centre (TTC) offers a specialised pathway for students providing them with the ability to combine their HSC studies with specific Trade Training in a variety of vocational areas.
Unlike other TTCs, the pathway offered at McCarthy is supported by a flexible timetable allowing students to be employed as School Based Apprentices/Trainees (SBAT) without missing learning opportunities at school. To achieve this students attend McCarthy four days a week and complete a minimum of two weeks Industry Placement per term.
To compliment the flexible timetable, students complete subjects from a tailored HSC subject package that has been developed to ensure success post the HSC. Essential Business and Financial Services training is provided through the inclusion of additional VET courses and a typical student enrolled in the TTC HSC Pathway does not sit any external examinations.
The following trade/vocational areas are available for students to access onsite:
- Automotive
- Bricklaying
- Carpentry
- Early Childhood Education and Care
- Electrical
- Engineering (Metal Fabrication)
- Hairdressing
- Hospitality (Commercial Cookery)
Students have the ability to access the following trades offsite with Expressions of Interest (EOI) considered for other trade/vocational areas:
- Plumbing
- Shopfitting
