School Engagement Programs

Advanced Technology Industry School Pathways Program

The Advanced Technology Industry School Pathways Program is a $5.9 million initiative funded from the Commonwealth by the Capability Acquisition and Sustainment Group (CASG). The program complements the growing industries in our state which support the growing defence industry in South Australia.

The Advanced Technology Project combines secondary school studies that have a specific focus on high level maths and science with highly technical Vocational Education and Training (VET). This combination provides a training pathway towards achieving a nationally recognised vocational accreditation and the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE) at the same time. These pathways are being developed in collaboration with defence industry organisations, South Australian universities and Registered Training Providers to ensure students receive up to date, industry-relevant training which prepares them for careers in the engineering, electro technology, technical design and manufacturing fields.

The program aims to:

  • prepare students for careers in the engineering, electro technology, technical design and manufacturing industry areas of our state
  • increase the pool of young people in these industry areas of high skills in both technical and professional career paths which includes tradespersons through to university graduates.

Concept2Creation (C2C) program

The C2C program introduces a "product life cycle" approach to science, maths and technology education by helping schools and students to develop the knowledge, understanding and appreciation of Advanced Manufacturing processes and possibilities through a problem solving learning approach. The C2C Program has been developed by the NAMIG (Northern Advanced Manufacturing Industry Group) Inc to provide a way for schools and industry in Northern Adelaide to work together to provide students with industry experience and assistance as they create their own C2C projects.

F1inSchools Competition

The competition links exciting classroom experiences with careers through the development of employability skills whilst engendering passion for careers in the manufacturing and engineering domains.
