TAFE Queensland - TQU

In 1882 on September 4, they started with only a dozen students in the garret of the North Brisbane School of Arts for a class in mechanical drawing.  In the same year, they expanded their course offering to include geology, bookkeeping, French, German and the history of the British Empire. Prior to this, post-school education was expensive and generally reserved for the wealthy. Technical colleges gave a greater number of individuals access to the skills they needed to participate in the workforce. As the needs of their economy grew, so did they, and by the 1900s they had expanded their footprint within the greater Brisbane region; founding the South Brisbane Technical College when the South Brisbane Municipality took over the Mechanics Institute and commenced operations in Townsville, Maryborough, Normanton, Hughenden and Rockhampton. In 1940 their Rockhampton, Ipswich and Central Technical Colleges began training men and women as munitions workers and technicians for the Army and the Air Force under the Commonwealth Technical (War Time) Training Scheme.  Five years later the Brisbane Technical Correspondence School opened offering 38 courses in art, commerce, literature, mathematics, rural studies, trades and domestic science. Courses were targeted at serving and discharged members of the armed forces. Interestingly, it wasn't until 1974, with the release of the Kangan report, that all Technical Colleges became known as Technical and Further Education (TAFE) Colleges.
