One of the great strengths of St Patrick’s Technical College is our staff.

Our administrative and teaching staff have high level skills and a range of experience which enables them to ensure positive student outcomes, strong links with industry and best practice in delivery of education and trade training.

Many of our teaching staff at St Patrick’s have trade qualifications and industry experience. This combined with education qualifications and experience helps in the delivery of focused, work oriented and relevant SACE and trade skills training.
