Mark Hands, Australian Industry Trade College
Mark Hands is a trailblazer and game-changer in education circles who leads the Australian Industry Trade College with a values-based philosophy and an agile and responsive approach to industry needs.
Under Hands’ capable leadership, AITC has seen great success. In the past 12 month alone, the college has scaled from three to five campuses in South East Queensland; increased enrolments by 40%; and signed more than 200 young people into an apprenticeship, traineeship, or employment. Two significant initiatives recently implemented by Hands were a student induction program designed to foster employability skills and build character; and a highly-regarded, successful Learning From Home program for Term 2 in response to COVID-19.
