Saint Yon Trade Training Centre was named after a school established by Saint John Baptist de La Salle in Rouen France in 1705. . The property was large (14.5 acres) and was owned by the sister in law of the Archbishop of Reims. This school was a first for de la Salle, where a great vision of education for all became a reality and new innovative and alternative teaching practices were undertaken.
The Trade Training Centre has enhanced the College curriculum through providing content specific vocational education courses dual accredited to meet National Standards (Australian Qualifications Framework) and the New South Wales Higher School Certificate. Trade courses offered include: Automotive, Construction, Electrotechnology and Metal & Engineering. Other vocational courses are also offered in Hospitality, Business Services, Information and Digital Technology and Sport.
In 2013, Saint Yon Trade Training Centre began delivering vocational training to senior students in a state of the art purpose built facility with the best equipment students could possibly learn with.
Trade Training courses are for students who want to get a HSC and at the same time prepare for work in a trade apprenticeship or traineeship. It is also for students who have a genuine interest in a trade and recognise the benefits of developing skills and knowledge in that area.
