On Site

The program is targeted towards young people of 15 and over as part of a final-stage intervention strategy.

This is a many-faceted program designed to support young people who have had difficulty with mainstream education, learning difficulties, or ongoing complex family situations.

The intention is to gain real-world skills and hands-on training to continue their education or gain employment.

The program is facilitated by One Stop Training in partnership with the Department of Youth Justice, alongside the local community.

Our facilities at Brisbane, Logan and the Gold Coast have the physical and material resources to facilitate these programs. Alternatively, and more common is for One Stop Training to bring the program to you – with any machinery learning being completed at our sites. We have learned that flexible, and mixed mode education delivers the best outcomes.

"I just completed my Certificate III and forklift ticket. I couldn’t have asked for a better and more understanding teacher. One of the best! Very accommodating to everyone in the classroom and ensures that you understand each question correctly and are kept up to date so no one falls behind. Great experience, great teacher. Thank you!"
