Uniforms to Overalls
Mid Coast Connect currently organises over 3000 placements from the Kempsey area to Buladelah each year.
Robbie Pinkerton is one of these students. He is combining his HSC and VET by attending Taree TAFE to complete an automotive course whilst also attending Taree High School to complete Year 12.
Robbie made a request to Old Bar Automotive for his work placement and owner Ted Anderson agreed. Robbie attended five days referred to as block week and Ted was so impressed that he offered him an apprenticeship.
Robbie has been working at Old Bar Automotive since June, confirming that Work Placement helps to identify young people with potential in the industry.
