Education – Naval Shipbuilding College

Education and Training Partners

We have partnered with Australia’s leading training and education providers to build a suite of endorsed training and education programs that are aligned with specific naval shipbuilding industry skill requirements.

Through an extensive training needs analysis across more than 200 roles, we have identified the most appropriate programs that will produce employment-ready graduates and open the door to employment pathways within the shipbuilding industry.

“The opportunity of gaining work experience in the shipbuilding enterprise – which is such a massive endeavour that means so much for the whole of Australia – is a once in a lifetime opportunity. It’s a unique experience I wouldn’t get anywhere else.”
