Institute of Training

Our vision is to empower children and young people to reach their potential. We know that the fastest way to create parity for disadvantaged children is through education and sustainable employment opportunities.

However, for many reasons, some young people need alternative learning options to traditional school. Without effective alternatives, the future for many of these young people is uncertain, leading to a cycle of disadvantage. That’s why we operate our Registered Training Organisation, rebranded in 2020 as the PCYC Institute of Training (IOT).

To minimise barriers to young people completing courses, PCYC also provides transportation to and from each Centre, as well as providing healthy meals.

The PCYC Institute of Training currently operates at eight Centres; Broome, Bunbury, Carnarvon, Gosnells, Kensington, Midland, Northam and Rockingham. PCYC Trainers also deliver courses at several metropolitan schools.
