In 2010, eight schools from the Wide Bay Area (Biggenden, Bundaberg SHS, Bundaberg North SHS, Bundaberg Special School, Kepnock State High School, Gin Gin State High School, Isis District State High School and Rosedale State School) along with Bundaberg TAFE College – formed a partnership and through a successful submission received $11.8 million dollars in funding from the Commonwealth Government’s Trade Training Centres in Schools Program.
For Bundaberg State High School this has meant being catapulted into the 21st century; our Hospitality and Industrial Arts workshops have been transformed into modern industry standard workplaces which are now recognized by the tertiary and industry community.
Bundaberg Regional Trade Training Centre (BRTTC) is strongly supported by:
- Industry-based group, Australian Industry Engineering Manufacturing Network (AIEM)
- Bundaberg TAFE

Our mission is to provide quality industry collaboration, vocational and educational programs that are of a high standard and skill level and provide greater career and employment opportunities for students.

Through our CAD-CAM Centre we are forming a strong partnership with CQ University who is offering an Engineering program for students who are studying English, Mathematics B, Mathematics C, Physics, Senior Graphics and Technology Studies.
