    I truly felt inspired and very appreciative of the classroom teacher’s time and willingness to share his success. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with your student; their willingness to share their stories and to permit me to work with them is a credit to you & your team. You certainly have created a very special program which the student is at the heart of the learning and all of them can experience a level of success which they can be proud of.

  • Parents, Students and Visitors
    We would just like to say THANKYOU !!
    The change in our son over the past few months has been amazing. My household is at peace again. The team at the College have all given him the opportunity of self-confidence, given him the ability to show some maturity as a young adult [not just a student among hundreds in a normal school environment and I feel that this has restored a lot of his trust and faith and allowed him to relax a little and to grow within himself. You have certainly made a very positive improvement to our lives and this year has been such a blessing for us. 
    We want you to know that we are very pleased with the quality of service the College has provided . My son was at a crossroad at the beginning of the year and I was at logger heads trying to find an educational institution that could keep him engaged in learning, so as to complete his HSC. The format of learning at the school has enabled my son to continue his HSC and undergo an apprenticeship at the same time. We sincerely appreciate the responsiveness of the Principal and her team at Trades Norwest. They are professional and always attentive to my son’s needs. He enjoys his time there and we have found the combination of work, trade training & school to be a perfect fit for us. I have no hesitation in recommending the College to other parents.
