Tec-NQ Opens New General Learning Area and Administration Expansion
It was with great pleasure that we recently celebrated the Official Opening of our new General Learning Area and Administration Expansion at Tec-NQ’s Douglas campus.
This 2.1million dollar project was achieved through the support of the State Government, via the State Capital Assistance Scheme and was officially opened by Member for Mundingburra Les Walker MP, on behalf of the Minister for Education.
“The Queensland Government is delighted to have invested $1,050,000 to help complete this work through the State Capital Assistance Scheme” Mr Walker said.
“Tec-NQ also made a contribution of $1,031,550, and is to be congratulated for this huge investment in Townsville school education and trades training for young people.”
“I thank your school for its significant investment and its support for education in North Queensland.”
Les Walker MP.
In recent years Tec-NQ has seen significant growth in both senior school enrolments and school based apprenticeship enrolments, resulting in continued demand for existing facilities. Through this project the campus can boast four additional classrooms, as well as expansion and refurbishment of another four, all fitted with modern technology and furnishings.
In 2022 with the support of local industry, Tec-NQ delivered the following outcomes:
- Over 780 full time apprentices in training
- 111 apprentices completed their qualifications
- Supported training for over 325 senior school students
With the support of local industry Tec-NQ delivers quality training and great outcomes year after year. This project enables us to further contribute to local economy and community by supporting the next generation of industry.
