Registered Training Organisation - 40750


Parade College is a Catholic boys’ secondary school with campuses at Bundoora and Preston. It is the oldest Edmund Rice School in Australia, dating back to 1871, and has a proud history of excellence in the education and pastoral care of young men. Parade offers a multitude of curriculum options for boys whatever their interest may be; from academic, sporting, music, visual arts and trade options.

The Edmund Rice Trade Training Centre was established at the Bundoora campus at the beginning of 2010 and the Preston campus in 2013. To support the focus of the Centre, Parade College was granted Registered Training Organisation (RTO) status, registration number 40750 in October 2013. Since this time the College provides pre-apprenticeship and VET training to students in years 10, 11 and 12 who are intending on pursuing post-secondary studies either at TAFE or university; apprenticeships, or employment.

Enquiries can be addressed to the Executive Officer – RTO at rto!SPAM!)@!SPAM!parade.vic.edu.au
