Liberal Senator Zed Seselja is cutting the ribbon this afternoon on the Dickson Area Trade Training Centre for students at Daramalan College and Emmaus Christian School.

“Secondary students from the North of Canberra can now gain valuable skills in trades such as automotive electrician, cook, fitter, metal fabricator, motor mechanic, pastry cook, plumber, and welder,” Zed said.

Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Education, Senator the Hon Scott Ryan said Australian Government funding of $3 million helped bring the centre to fruition.

“The automotive, electrotechnology, engineering and hospitality skills to be imparted at the centre are currently in short supply,” Senator Ryan said.

“The new facilities include an automotive workshop, a metal engineering and electrotechnology workshop and a combined theory room, an existing food technology facility refurbished to include a commercial kitchen and high quality equipment.”

Senator Seselja said the Dickson Area Trade Training Centre will offer secondary students at Daramalan College and Emmaus Christian School qualifications in automotive, electrotechnology, engineering and hospitality.

“I’m pleased to see the local Dickson school community has joined together to bring this initiative to the young people of the area.”
