We are very proud of our association with Stratco who sponsor our Trainee of the Year award for our annual academic celebration evening and help facilitate our Year 9 Stratco program.

This program allows up to 30 students to participate in a manufacturing based course, one day per week, for approximately 10 weeks. 

During the course students work with a Stratco employee and a Gold Coast Institute of TAFE teacher, to complete 6 competencies towards a Certificate I in Engineering. Students also fabricate a range of various tools they can take home with them.

At the conclusion of the program Stratco selects two students to complete a school-based apprenticeship in their metal fabrication plant at Yatala. Feedback from students has always been very positive and a number of past students have transitioned to full-time apprenticeships with Stratco after completing the first year of their school-based apprenticeship. Upper Coomera State College (UCSC) thanks Stratco for their continued support of the College.
