We aim to provide training in employability and life skills, within our industrial workplace environment, located at 199 Georgetown Road, Rocherlea. The organisation has been operating since 1978 and work with students aged 14 to 16 years who are currently enrolled in Northern High Schools can be referred to the organisation. The program operates in conjunction with local high schools, industry and community groups.
