Street Smart High success

Public news

This month, the MTA attended Street Smart High: an annual road safety education event aimed at students in years 10 through 12, designed to provide young people with the knowledge, skills and attitudes to become safer, smarter drivers.

During the lunch break, students were able to engage with our cutting-edge Virtual Reality mechanical and painting experiences, as well as MTA School Pathways Coordinator, Andrew Parkes and Apprentice Recruitment and Support Coordinator, Tanya Sanchez who were discussing the many opportunities and pathways available to students within the automotive industry.

Over 8,000 students attended the event over the two days and it was a great opportunity to make them aware of our industry and the exciting opportunities in an automotive career.

The Department for Education’s new Student Pathways website has all the information students need to make an informed career choice, plus an area for industry to upload work experience opportunities – explore the website here.
