​Urangan Tech (U-TECH) is a vocational pathway partnership between Urangan State High School and East Coast TAFE which presents some great opportunities for those students who know what they want to study and are focused on their career goals.

The U-Tech program allows students to study their chosen vocational field, obtain structured work placement in their field of study, as well as achieve their Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE) at the end of year 12.

The management and organisation of the program is shared jointly between Urangan State High School and East Coast TAFE.  All students are enrolled through Urangan State High School and have access to services and extra-curricular activities provided by the school.

Students study English, Maths and three electives taught by Urangan State High School teachers at the Urangan State High School campus in Robert Street four days per week. Students also study a trade certificate through East Coast TAFE - RTO # 0418 one day per week on the East Coast TAFE campus in Urraween Road.  C​

The East Coast TAFE campus provides a learning environment where students are treated with the maturity and respect of a tertiary learning institution. The classes are taught by an innovative group of progressively minded teachers dedicated to helping students become forward thinking young adults. The TAFE teachers have teaching and industry qualifications (they know their subject and how it relates to the modern working world) giving students an “insider's advantage” when they reach the workforce. 

U-Tech gives students the advantage of having a close relationship with their vocational teachers and the industry standard facilities located at the campus. These facilities include a fully operational gym, fitness centre, hairdressing salon, beauty salon, commercial kitchens, and restaurant and construction workshops. As a U-Tech student, you are enrolled at Urangan State High School. As such, you receive all the great benefits of the school and TAFE including:  

  • The best quality instructors. 

  • All school sports.

  • All school carnivals.

  • Graduation, awards nights etc.

  • Urangan State High School's excellent support services
