Lilydale Trades Training Centre

Lilydale Trades Training Centre

Box Hill Institute’s Lilydale Lakeside campus is soon to open a $10.2 million state-of-the-art trades training centre to deliver industry-current apprenticeship training in wood, electrical, plumbing and automotive trades. 

Our new, purpose-built, flexibly designed facility provides the Yarra Ranges Shire and surrounding areas with training opportunities around construction practices and technologies, addressing key gaps in the education and training available in the region, which has growing industry demand for skilled workers. 

The centre contains purpose built facilities for students including indoor and outdoor working spaces to mimic working environments.

With the current shortage of qualified carpenters and joiners throughout Australia, there has never been a better time to get yourself a trade. Build your future and get hands on experience learning from industry professionals in our purpose-built facility.

Opening mid-2021.
