Vocational Education and Training (VET)
St Johns College operates the Orana Trade Training Centre (OTTC) in consortium with Dubbo Christian School, Macquarie Anglican Grammar School and St Marys Central School Wellington. It plays an important role in ensuring students have access to high quality education and training opportunities.
This facility boasts commercial kitchens, teaching café, theory rooms, engineering workshop and a parade arena to allow students to gain qualifications in Hospitality, Primary Industries and Engineering. In addition the College also offers VET Construction and VET Entertainment.
The Orana Trade Training Centre offers a flexible school experience for Year 11 and 12 students wanting to pursue a career in a vocational field, and allows St Johns to offer students the opportunity to fast track their career while they finish their HSC, through accelerating their qualifications.
Senior students also have access to undertake study through the local TAFE campuses (TVET) as part of their studies, again providing a rounded and unique educational experience.
St Johns College offers the opportunity for students to access Work Placement and School Based Apprenticeships and Traineeships (SBATS) which allow senior students to commence an apprenticeship or complete a traineeship while at school.
St Johns warmly welcomes enrolment enquiries to our College. Parents can contact the Enrolment Officer on 02 6841 5131, or for more information visit www.stjohnsdubbo.catholic.edu.au.
