$3.5m will boost students' skills

BUDDING tradies will have a chance to learn skills early in life with the launch of Warwick Trade Training Centre.

Member for Maranoa Bruce Scott yesterday said part of $3.5 million of federal funding would be put towards investment in trade training.

Mr Scott said the new project, the Warwick Trade Training Centre, would be based mainly at Warwick State High School but would also support students from Allora, Clifton and Killarney.

"The federal funding will include the construction of an industrial workshop and an industrial shed, refurbishment of an existing facility to include an engineering workshop, as well as providing equipment across the schools," he said.

"The trade training centre will deliver Certificate I and II qualifications in agriculture, engineering and manufacturing and also Certificate II qualifications in Sampling and Measuring.

"With the Warwick region located on the cusp of the Surat Basin Energy Province, these certificates and facilities will help more local students find employment in skills areas identified by the resources sector."
