Spreading the word on Australian Apprenticeships at SMGT Open Day

SMGT ‘Try a Trade’ day a success!

Fiona Dimasi and Breece Stephens from our Mildura office were lucky enough to be a part of the Sunraysia Murray Group Training “Try a Trade” day at the Mildura Region Trade Training Centre.

Insights to different career pathways

Up to 700 students from years 9 and 10 around the Sunraysia area got to get out of their classrooms for the day to attend the day and try out their skills in different trades.

The day also also showcases other career opportunities including the Victorian police, Australia Defence Force and Latrobe Uni.

Students had the opportunity get hand on experience by taking part in the exhibitions where they can actually try out their skills by welding, painting, building, cooking and even hairdressing and make up.

MAS Team supporting learning

Our team had a section where our team spoke to plenty of students interested in apprenticeships and traineeships. They also discussed our free Gateway services that gives students access to free career advice and industry expertise to help them plan their future.
