Welcome to Southern Cross Vocational Enterprises

Southern Cross Vocational Enterprises is a unique educational unit established as a business model to provide enterprise opportunities for students enrolled in Vocational Education and Training courses to access real work experiences and specific industry based learning aligned to course competencies.

Under the guidance of experienced industry specialists, senior students from Sydney Catholic Schools have the opportunity to engage in enterprise activities to observe and work alongside professionals to include, but not limited to Chefs, Food and Beverage Attendants, Technical Operators, Event Coordinators, and Corporate Administration Teams.  This enables students to develop skills and knowledge aligned to course requirements and for future employability.

Southern Cross Vocational Enterprises is part of the Sydney Catholic Schools, and is established as a part of the vision and learning philosophy within the educational setting of Southern Cross Catholic Vocational College Burwood.  The dedicated Enterprise Team is focused on providing goods and services aligned to industry benchmarks and expectations.

This site provides a link to three of our Enterprise areas: Kassala Catering, Conference Centre, and Entertainment and Events.  There are a number of ways the team may support you whilst engaging students in training:  from providing catering and staffing for your event at your location or ours. Our venue offers unique options to host professional development, corporate and private events, performing your next theatre production, through to recording sound tracks or a demo tape in the studio.

Our aim is to establish a sustainable operational model built from the support of our patrons.  We welcome you to contact our team as your business enables these opportunities to be realised for students.
