Casuarina Senior College is the first Pathways in Technology (P-TECH) pilot school based in Northern Territory.
At the Top End P-TECH Partnership, the College is partnering with companies to encourage students to pursue a career in Maritime and other potential industries. To achieve this goal, the College works collaboratively with locally-based industry partners Austal and Norship.
The partnership works to ensure a pipeline of skilled, adaptable and resilient young people are entering the labour market. More local employers are expected to be involved in the partnership as the pilot program evolves and grows, providing additional resources and practical opportunities to Casuarina Senior College students.
Industry partners at the Top End P-TECH site are working collaboratively with the education sector to secure a skilled local workforce for maritime-based careers in NT.
Casuarina Senior College is a Years Ten to Twelve school. They are passionate about providing high-quality education that enables all students to achieve their personal best and achieve a pathway to their desired career.
The P-TECH partnership is currently working through the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) VET pathways that will link students to jobs for the future in the Darwin region.
Another key element of the pilot at Casuarina Senior College will be to implement strategies that encourage and support Indigenous students to engage in the P-TECH learning program.
