MTA providing FLO students with automotive pathways

Public news

The MTA’s RTO is working with young people at St Patrick’s College under a Flexible Learning Option (FLO) in the training of a (AUR10116) Certificate I in Automotive Vocational Preparation.

View the video below to hear from a few students in the program and MTA Regional Operations Manager, Warren Meissner about the importance of our work with St Patrick’s Technical College.

Young people can be placed in a FLO program for a number of reasons including barriers in their traditional classroom learning. The MTA’s assistance in teaching automotive skills is helping them to re-engage with school and find a meaningful career pathway.

This ultimately means a better outcome for industry by supporting these young people through their journey to employment. However, we do need assistance from industry to continue promoting automotive trades and providing real-world work experience for these students.
