The Gympie Trade Training Centre (GTTC) opened in Semester 2, 2014 at the TAFE Gympie campus. The GTTC was founded via a partnership between James Nash SHS (lead school), Gympie SHS, Saints Patrick’s College, Cooloola Christian College, Mary Valley State College, Tin Can Bay P-10 and Victory College. Several schools have since left this partnership. The GTTC offers certificate courses to senior students enrolled at the currently participating schools.
