Construction Industry:
Attracting apprentices to construction trades
Mid Coast Connect has been working with local employers and training stakeholders to support the implementation of the Port Macquarie Hastings Council's Construction Industry Action Plan.  The group has been working to encourage entrepreneurship through apprenticeships, mentoring and pathways programs.  A number of events are underway to support the attraction of apprentices into the industry; including the recent Mid Coast Careers Market which had a significant range of construction industries and was well supported by local employers.  Plans are underway for a Careers Adviser information session in August and the Construction Industry Showcase which will be held at North Coast TAFE's Wauchope Campus in term 3.
Try a Trade Day in Taree
Mid Coast Connect invites Year 9 & 10 girls and boys from local high schools in the Manning-Great Lakes to participate in a trades awareness day at North Coast TAFE - Taree Campus on Thursday 16 June.  The day aims to raise awareness through interactive learning to explore some non-traditional occupations.  Local role models will share their career journey and provide hands-on experiences in a range of workplace activities.  For more information contact Toni-lee Palmer on 6551 5463 or 0439 246 670.
