Welcome to St Patrick's Technical College

St Patrick’s Technical College is a purpose built, technical and trade training school. We offer a trade focused South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE) program and pre-vocational training at Certificate II and III level for Year 11 and 12 students. We specialise in individual programs for students who wish to complete their SACE in a School-based Apprenticeship.


St Patrick's Technical College has produced over 500 quality apprentices since 2007. If your business is looking for a focused and work-ready young person, contact our Industry Office today and arrange a work trial and details on our unique school-based apprentice program.
