Six Glencore apprentices have graduated from a six-month Mudgee Skills Centre (MSC) training program offered at TAFE Western at a special presentation last week.
The MSC Program offered Glencore Electrical and Fitting and Machining apprentices an opportunity to increase their skills in a range of areas to enhance their trade qualifications.
“Some of the important skills the students learnt as part of the MSC Program include electrical enhancements, fitting and machining, metal fabrication projects, hydraulics and pneumatics, first aid and computer skills,” TAFE Western Business Capability Unit Director Brad Polak said.
“This MSC Program has been operating for more than five years and during this time more than 50 apprentices and their employers have benefitted from this initiative.”
Mudgee Skills Centre graduates for 2016 were:
Mitchell Tubnor, Electrical apprentice.
“The MSC Program is a high quality, flexible training program customised to meet the needs of each employer and varying attendance patterns are negotiated by the employers for their apprentices,” Mr Polak added.
“I’d like to congratulate all of the graduates and pay special mention to Mitchell Redding who won the Outstanding Student Award for the mechanical trade and Mitchell Tubnor who won the Outstanding Student Award for the electrical trade.”
As part of their graduation, each student successfully showcased their work and made a final presentation to a panel of employers and teachers. At the conclusion of these presentations, graduating students were joined by colleagues, family and friends to celebrate the occasion.
