The MTA was invited to participate at the Edward John Eyre High School Whyalla Careers Expo to showcase our services and training information to the approximately 600 year 10, 11 and 12 students who attended the day from local schools and outlying areas including the Cleve Area School.Students were required to obtain information and a stamp on their “passports” from providers who supplied them with career information they were interested in. They had also pre booked to attend two “Try a Trade” sessions throughout the day which included career field activities relating to many trades, including those in automotive sectors.
We provided a tyre changing activity which was well attended and supported on the day by the MTA’s Warren Meissner, while our Western Regional Coordinator, Julie Davis, worked on our information stand and had discussions with students regarding automotive training, career pathways and apprenticeship options.
We are always available to liaise with and provide information about opportunities for students. We also provide information to teachers who are looking for more information on career options and training in the automotive sector. This is all part of our Schools Pathways Program that is essential in promoting opportunities in the industry.
