John Tonkin College takes on technology with the help of Curtin University

John Tonkin College (JTC) students are learning how to build an App. The course runs over 10 weeks and is taught by Curtin University teachers who travel to Mandurah from Perth to give specialised lessons.

Twelve students make their way to the co-working hub Make Place which exposes them to a business setting. The community focused program teaches students a skill set which will see them well equipped to develop and expand on the tools they have been taught.

The College's vision is to provide 'a unique centre of excellence for lifelong learning.'

Acting Principal Kim Savins says that John Tonkin college "has developed a special relationship with Curtin" and believes the students are getting a lot out of the program.
