Training of Automotive Trimming Apprentices has recommenced at Balga Campus under the \”Local training for Local Needs\” initiative developed by the State Government.
Apprentice training ceased a few years ago and the few employers who took on apprentices in Automotive Trimming had to send apprentices to TAFENSW for training.
The team at Balga has been busy developing resources for delivery as well as attending to Teaching Qualifications over the past 12 months and they are pleased to add that the numbers of registered apprentices has started to flow back into the courses at Balga.
Late last year the Automotive and Marine Trimming started with 5 apprentices who were joined by a further 7 apprentices this year with a total of 12 apprentices enrolled state wide.
The facility at Balga Campus houses not only the Automotive and Marine Trimming (inc Aviation Upholstery), but also Furniture Upholstery and Manufactured Textiles. A one stop shop for the associated Craft Trades for WA.
Employer and Apprentice feedback has been very positive and the training facility is well established again with specialist tools and equipment. We still have a way to go I am happy with the quality of all the resources and facility and we have not dropped the ball at any time while striving to be on top of the game in Quality Training that meets Industries needs at this early stage.
