MACA HQ opened its doors to fifteen curious and enthusiastic Year 9 students from Gilmore College.
A new initiative by the Department of Training and Workforce Development in collaboration with the Department of Education, the Year 9 Career Taster Program (CTP) provides unique opportunities for students to explore the world of work, and the many career pathways on offer.
The day began with introductions from Linda Devereux, Head of People and Communications and Jim Price, Maintenance Support Manager. Together they shared who we are and what we do here at MACA.
With the focus of the day being apprenticeships within the diverse resources sector, we brought in our very own first year stars, Judd Suckling, Amber Rhys Jones, and Tyrone Kendrick. They captivated the room with their individual experiences, from challenges overcome to the many opportunities on offer in their promising futures.
At last, the time had come to don the high-vis and head on over to the workshop, there was no hiding the anticipation and intrigue of our guests!
Gavin Milentis, Workshop Manager, led a range of activities for the students, from clambering onboard an excavator to observing the extensive suite of tools and contraptions in operation.
We’re proud to be involved with this Program, hosting the next generation of WA’s workforce at MACA.
