 An exciting way
  to train for a
rewarding career
        FAST FACTS:
 2006 has been a very busy year for the staff and
 students at the Australian Technical College
 Northern Tasmania. Enrolling at ATCNT has
 already opened up career opportunities for our
 students. Only 4 months ago we started with 25
 students, already more than half of our first cohort
 have secured apprenticeships, with many more in
 the pipeline.This is a great result for each of these
 students, and indeed for the ATC in its first year of
 operation. Congratulations to the following
 students and employers where apprenticeships
 have been achieved recently.Josh Ralson (Matthews
 Constructions), Jordan Fairbrother and Tom
 French (cb&m design), Josh Gould (Stubbs
 Constructions) and Warwick Johnston (Meadson
 Construction). In the photograph is Josh Ralston,
 congratulated by Julie Bishop on the day he
 secured his apprenticeship.

 Looking forward to 2007
 In 2007 over 150 students will start their studies
 and training with ATCNT. Added to our initial
 programs of Carpentry and Metals and Joinery,
 Plumbing, Electrotechnology (electrical) and
 Commercial Cookery. Places are still available in
 Plumbing, Commercial Cookery and Metals
 (Burnie only). Waiting lists are in place for all
 courses in case places become available. Our
 programs commence on 29 January, 2007.
 Long Term Sites
 Preliminary design work is underway for the
 construction of our permanent facilities in both
 Launceston and Burnie. Announcements about
 these exciting new homes for the ATC will be made
 in the early part of 2007.
