TRADE & OTHER VET COURSE OPTIONS AVAILABLE FOR NEPEAN AND BLUE MOUNTAINS INDEPENDENT SCHOOLS
Independent schools from the Nepean, Blue Mountains and Hawkesbury regions form the KEY Alliance to provide a Trade Training Centre to provide students at independent schools access to trade and other vocational education courses as part of their Higher School Certificate.
Current Alliance schools are Penrith Christian School, Wycliffe Christian School, St Paul’s Grammar School, Nepean Christian School, The Lakes Christian College and Kuyper Christian School. The trade and other vocational education courses offered through the Alliance receive, upon completion of required units of competency, a Statement of Attainment towards Certificate II and/or Certificate III level courses.
Students enrolled in an Alliance school, or another local independent school, may access courses in “block delivery” mode on, usually, Tuesday afternoons for Year 12 students and on, usually, Thursday afternoons for Year 11 students with, usually, no interruptions to other HSC studies. Transport to Delivery Schools is provided by each Home School for both their Year 11 and Year 12 students. All students arrange their own transport home from their Delivery School.
