Marcellin Technical College now a campus of Cardijn College
Cardijn College is pleased to announce that Marcellin Technical College has merged with Cardijn College and will be known as Marcellin Technical, a campus of Cardijn College. Marcellin Technical will continue to specialise in trade, vocational and technical education.

Since 2016, Cardijn College and Marcellin Technical College have worked in partnership to provide the best Catholic education to students of the southern suburbs, whatever career pathway they choose.

Over the past 18 months, many of the core support functions of Marcellin have been centralised at Cardijn. A combined board assumed the governance of both schools which facilitated a streamlined approach to services such as finance, marketing and communications, maintenance and ICT.

Marcellin Technical offers trade, vocational and technical training to students who wish to undertake an Australian School-based Apprenticeship (ASbA) concurrent to completing their SACE.

Cardijn College, in collaboration with southern region Catholic Primary Schools, will continue to strengthen partnerships to enable students and their families to be consistently supported throughout their transition from primary to secondary education.

This model of education ensures the continuity of pastoral care and student development from early learning, primary and middle schooling, into senior school and beyond.

For our students who commence an AsBA at Marcellin and then transition to a full apprenticeship, we offer a unique model of pastoral care. This model fosters an ongoing relationship with apprentices through our onsite RTO, MTC Training, once they have completed Year 12.

There are exciting plans for the future of Marcellin with the introduction of new courses to students from 2019 including Hairdressing, Cosmetics, Early Childhood Education and Individual Support (Ageing) and the establishment of a STEM laboratory.

Cardijn College will also undergo an expansion as we welcome our first intake of Year 7 students in 2019.

It is an exciting time for Catholic education in the southern suburbs. Families can be confident that their child's individual needs will be catered for, no matter where their skills and ambitions lead them and that a high-quality Catholic education is accessible and achievable for every student.
