Doug , Electrical Apprentice

A few friends were looking at it, so I looked into it too. When I learned that they do the subjects that were relevant to me, I applied. I did electronics and realised that’s where I wanted to head. So I thought if I come here, there would be better facilities, training, experience and knowledge to learn from.

I found most of my Year 10 subjects irrelevant at my old school, so it was important to me to make sure I was learning the right things that would help me on my career path. Try a Trade was great for me. I liked each area that I went to, but I found electrical to be the one I connected with. One reason I came here is that I could get my SACE and that meant I could do these other things down the track. It’s important to me to have a pathway to University.
