If you are still in school and wanting to begin your apprenticeship you may be able to start a School-Based Apprenticeship. If you are thinking of beginning a School-Based Apprenticeship you should first talk to your parents and your school’s Career Advisor, as they will need to agree to support the apprenticeship. School-Based apprenticeships are a great way to get a head start on your future career goals while working towards your year 12 qualification.
Brendan McConnell approached UMR Engines looking for an apprenticeship as an automotive mechanic. Although he had no previous industry experience, after taking the Harrison Career Assessment UMR Engines were willing to give him a chance.
“The boss took me around the workshop and then asked me to do the assessment. It took me about half an hour.
The blokes I work with help me along the way and it gives me great satisfaction that I’m able to help the customers”.
