CJ was recently signed-up with the energetic and dedicated team at Shark Plumbing on the Gold Coast. When he began work experience placement with Shark Plumbing, he knew this was the team he wanted to complete his apprenticeship with. He put in the hours and proved his commitment working throughout his summer holidays — reaping the reward when the apprenticeship contract was signed to be a school-based plumber’s apprentice.
“The AITC helped me find my place in an industry that excites me. I enjoy going to school as it is the best of both worlds – being able to finish school and gain experience on the job. At the AITC, you can definitely find the right fit for you. Having a trade can take you all over the world.”
CJ, Year 12 student
My daughter is considering electrical or a diesel fitting pathway. The great thing is she can try both industries before she has to decide. She always knew she wanted a practical job and didn’t want to go to university and the AITC is the perfect pathway to choose an apprenticeship and still get QCE.
She has gained so much confidence since starting at the AITC and it is so much more fun than traditional school. They are on excursions so often and she loves the TAFE tasters. She said it is the best school community – everyone shows respect and genuinely cares for each other. She said she has the best teachers she has ever had. Loves having no homework. The best school ever!
