Findon Technical College

South Australia’s very first technical college will open at Findon High School in 2024.

The technical college gives students an unprecedented head start to a hands-on career in 3 in-demand industries while learning in specially built facilities with state-of-the-art technology.

Designed for students in years 10, 11 and 12, the industry training programs are developed and delivered with employer partners that include some of Australia and the world’s largest service providers. These partnerships create high quality expertise, employment-ready pathways, and direct connections and experience in the real world.

Students who complete high school at Findon Technical College are guaranteed a job when they leave school with one of the employer partners if they choose to take it.  Students may choose to fast-track to university and work part-time in the industry while they complete their tertiary education.
