They look happy to be on the job and are wasting no time building new skills!
VEC also has a cadet program, which is a pathway to an apprenticeship. This provides on-the-job training for young people but requires that they stay connected to their formal education.
Those in the program must finish Year 10 with sound academic outcomes and deliver good performance in the workplace.
The idea is to encourage young people to continue their formal education, while at the same time providing them with an engaging workplace learning opportunity that stands them in good stead to permanently enter the workforce.
