Try’A Trade

This week some of our Year 10 and Year 9 students are at Try’A Trade at the Clarkson campus of NMetro Tafe. Over 3 days they will have a go at plastering, tiling and bricklaying.

This state-of-the-art facility is the main campus for trades training in Perth’s northern corridor.

Try’a Trade is a day where students can try a number of trades and learn more about the many career options the industry provides. Students might be thinking of a career in the trades or maybe still figuring out what job pathway they might like to pursue. Either way, Try’a Trade is the perfect way to try a whole range of options all in the same day.

The best part about Try’a Trade is that it’s really hands on. Students get the chance to drill, hammer, and plaster while learning from real tradespeople.
