From Work Placement to full time Apprentice!
a student from Great Lakes College Tuncurry Campus, attended Taree TAFE one day a week to study Automotive as he really wanted an apprenticeship. As part of his course
needed to complete 35 hours of work placement and he asked Mid Coast Connect to approach Great Lakes Nissan.
Richard, the Service Manager for Great Lakes Nissan, firstly met with
before committing to host him for his week of work placement. The meeting went well and Richard welcomed
to the team.
After time spent working at Great Lakes Nissan, Richard and his team were so impressed they offered
an apprenticeship. He started work immediately after finishing Year 10 and in 2018 has officially been signed into an Automotive apprenticeship and is working very successfully on the job and at TAFE.
Thank you to Great Lakes Nissan for hosting work placements and giving young people like
the opportunity to enter the industry.
