THE $3.4 million dollar Transport, Logistics and Electro Trade Skills Centre that has come out of the ground at Gladstone State High School should be ready for use in the middle of February.

Head of senior school Brendan Hooley said courses run in the centre would benefit students.

"Both logistics and warehousing and electrotechnology are growth areas for the future and therefore, students completing these qualifications will have improved job prospects," he said.

"We think it is a very positive program for our students and our partnership with business and industry."

Gladstone state member of parliament Glenn Butcher said it was a great investment by the state government.

"This centre will be great for students and the community as a whole," he said.

"We are continually investing in schools in the region."
