About us

Delivering Academic Achievement. Creating Employability. Building Careers.

Tec-NQ – your senior school

We aim to provide positive academic outcomes to support the transition of students from school to the work environment. We do this through our strong industry and community networks and also, by providing our students with quality face-to-face instruction, mentoring and guidance which promotes the development of academic success, industry skills, resilience and a positive, proactive attitude.

Our integrated work-based curriculum is underpinned by active, successful life-long learning which nurtures confidence, creativity and delivers excellence in trade and academic skills so our students are work ready, employable individuals with the skills, drive and mindset to flourish in their chosen careers.


Creating employability and success through industry skills, experience and support.
