The Hunter Trade College, the best place to start a trade career.

We are a senior high school where students study for both a Higher School Certificate and a trade qualification.

We provide a great start for a trade career in the automotive, construction, electrical and metal trades.

Over 56% of our students are successful in starting a career in the trades. We achieve this result by making sure we get several things right.

  • We have a balance between academic study and trade training. Students have 2 to 3 days of industry experience each week.
  • Our staff are qualified, experienced and caring. They give expert guidance in the trade skills required and the academic subjects of English, Maths and Computer Applications.
  • Our facilities are state of the art. Over $6m has been invested in making sure that students have the best equipment and training rooms.
  • We have extensive connections with Hunter employers so that our students can gain industry experience and increase their chances of employment.
