Industry Skills Centre

Preparing people for industry.

BGT’s Industry Skill Centre (ISC) has been in operation since 23 March 2005. In this time the Industry Skills Centre has facilitated the training and placement of students, both male and female, into employment and Apprenticeships in the metal industry across Ballarat and the surrounding areas. Our training program is designed around the Certificate II in Engineering and incorporates welding, thermal cutting, fabrication and basic fitting and turning skills.

The ISC has strong links with industry. These relationships enable our experienced instructors to impart current industry best practice techniques to our students. This develops student’s confidence in their skill level when they are applying for an Apprenticeship or industry related position.

Our record in delivering relevant and quality training speaks for itself.  Over the past 12 months in excess of 20 ISC students have gained an apprenticeship in their chosen field and a further 30 students have found employment after completing the Certificate II in Engineering qualification. It is a testament to the standard of training provided to our students that employers send them back to us to continue their Apprenticeship training.
