FREDERICK OSMAN
Director of vocational education & RTO manager (careers education)
Trinity Grammar School (Summer Hill, NSW)

Frederick Osman has played an instrumental role in the implementation of Trinity initiatives aimed at broadening the curriculum to service non-ATAR, mixed-ability students who don’t wish to attend university, thus ensuring those students obtain certification that facilitates their transition to employment. The Trinity Vocational Academic Course enables students to take up school-based traineeships and still receive an ATAR, which is new to the NSW school system. All eight students who completed these traineeships last year have moved directly into employment. Additionally, the program has grown to a point where Trinity has itself become a registered training organisation. Year 11 and 12 students are offered an alternative vocational pathway, with VET Certificate ll and Certificate lll courses offered.
