Here at the Outer Northern Trade Training Centre (ONTTC) we have teamed up with various industry and community partners and invested in furthering our impact locally and across Melbourne to enhance employment opportunities. This has been done with the partnerships of: Cummings, Kenworth Paccar, Komatsu and currently working to engage Daimler Benz.
These industry and community partners have invested significant resources that support the technical education of our students here in the Northern Suburbs.
Cummins have supplied: engines, tool boxes specialised staff training, dedicated engine service tooling. This has been coupled with the Technical Education for Communities (TEC) program which is a soft skills program that elevates students to work readiness that is directly related to employment opportunities. To further assist our students here at ONTTC we select and enrol 16 students into this program which includes Structured Work placement within any of our industry partners across Melbourne. ONTTC is one of only five locations offering this across Australia. Two are located in Queensland and two are in Perth. ONTTC is the only Trade Training Centre in Victoria to offer this program.
