Queensland Agricultural Training Colleges (QATC) is part of the fabric of Australian agriculture.  We are located throughout Queensland - at Longreach Pastoral College and Emerald Agricultural College as well as training hubs across the State.  

For 50 years, our unique mix of practical training supported by classroom-based learning has helped graduates enjoy rewarding careers in agriculture. Our graduates can be found in the bush or city, in Australia or overseas. 

Innovative programs are developed in consultation with industry, ensuring graduates are equipped to handle the challenges modern agriculture presents today and for years into the future. Our range of courses caters for high school students, school-leavers, career changers, and even those already in the agricultural workforce seeking to upskill or gain formal recognition of existing skills.

We also offer an alternate pathway for Year 11 and 12 students to achieve a QCE, agricultural certificates and CQUniversity study credit. Our partnership with CQUniversity provides a hands-on tertiary education.
