Looking for a manufacturing apprenticeship?
In partnership with State Training Services, HVTC has launched an
exciting new campaign to encourage more people to take up an
apprenticeship in the manufacturing industry.
Through HVTC, an apprenticeship in manufacturing offers full-time or
part-time employment that combines work and structured training. It
allows you to learn and develop skills that will help set you up with a
rewarding career in the manufacturing industry.
For employers, now is the perfect time to put on a new apprentice in the
mechanical and electrical fields. Did you know that under Fair Work
Australia, first and second year pay rates will increase for all new
apprentices from January 1, 2014? But, if you sign up with HVTC before
31 December 2013 and your apprentice rates won’t be affected.
With the funding support from State Training Services, our campaign
features radio advertising in the Hunter region and has allowed us to
develop a scholarship program and update our HVTC Skills Centre
Hunter-V-Tec website to make it more relevant for you. The HVTC State
Training Services Educational Scholarship will be awarded at the end of
2013 to an outstanding apprentice, who has demonstrated commitment and
skills valued in the manufacturing industry.
