Port offers Community Services courses at Certificate II and III level. These are great courses for those interested in Youth Work, Childcare, Aged Care and many other care and support roles within the community. The delivery of these courses is very much self-paced and the content is quite generic, allowing students to refine their direction and interests as the course progresses. The Community Services industry is a rapidly growing section of the workforce and demand for a variety of roles is quite strong. This is a great place to start with real career opportunities.

This is an introductory course that covers everything necessary to commence work in the timber manufacturing industry, including occupational health and safety, communication, use of hand and power tools and the construction of various types of furniture. Whilst this is a ‘furniture’ course, the skills apply to the construction and manufacturing industries in general, with most of the subjects being transferrable. This is a great course for those who like working with their hands and see their future in the trades.

The Certificate in General Education Courses are essentially numeracy and literacy courses aimed at those who may have struggled with, or had difficulty with mainstream schooling. These are self-paced courses with plenty of one-on-one support available. These courses are the heart of Port School’s numeracy and literacy, and the Certificate I and II courses have been written specifically for the needs of our students’ profile. Certificate III in General Education is delivered by auspice arrangement with Communicare (RTO number 50548).

The different levels enable students to enter at a point that suits their ability, and as they progress through the certificates, they will set themselves up for either further study or working life beyond Year 12.

Port School provides morning tea and lunches for students and staff every day. Three days per week lunch consists of a 2-course meal. This course is ideal for those who may wish to start a career in the hospitality industry. Students perform a range of activities and functions requiring basic knowledge and limited practical skills. The course provides a great range of training for both ‘front’ and ‘back’ of house, so not only food preparation and cooking, but also reception and waitperson duties.

A number of Port students have progressed into part-time jobs whilst still at school and some have looked at careers in this industry after leaving school.

For those who have been disengaged from school and have missed a considerable amount of time, this is an ideal course to assist getting back into school life. It provides basic literacy and numeracy skills and is also focused around a practical group project, through which students learn to work and communicate, whilst gaining valuable employability skills. This course also comprises a unit on Cultural Studies, and whilst not exclusive, it is well suited to Indigenous students. This course offers a great opportunity to gently re-engage with school and all that Port has to offer.

This course is delivered by auspice arrangement with South Metro TAFE (RTO number 52787).

This is a great course for those who enjoy sports. It covers the design, set up and delivery of a range of sports, and is excellent introductory course for those hoping to coach teams or perhaps get in to the fitness industry. This course is delivered by auspice arrangement with the YMCA (RTO number 3979).

This is an introductory course covering design, drawing, painting and ceramics. Students have lots of opportunities to express themselves in 2D and 3D formats. This course may be completed for personal development only, but may also lead on to further study at a post-secondary institution. It can also be an introduction to working in a range of jobs including print shops, sign-writing, web design and others roles with a creative element.

All students are supported through their studies with no set time period imposed for completion. Awards are given for the completion of all units of competency that, in turn, contribute to the completion of the qualification.

When students feel sufficiently confident to undertake a work experience placement or traineeship, Port’s Employment Coordinator manages their placement and mentors them as they progress hopefully to the first stages of their working life.

Port is also able to assist and support students who wish to pursue training that we do not currently offer.  Port’s every-growing Employer Community also enables us to arrange school-endorsed work experience placements and school-based traineeships.

Providing a real alternative for adolescents who need a different kind of school.
