Local hospitality and automotive businesses are driving demand for apprentices, so whether you’re handy with a whisk or a spanner, now is the ideal time to start an apprenticeship.

In the wake of an industry shortfall in the automotive industry, The Gordon’s automotive teacher Ken Petzierides is encouraging those interested in commencing a career in the industry to take up the opportunity.

"The automotive industry continues to demand quality apprentices. We run a pre-apprenticeship automotive course here for those looking to get a foot in the door or wanting to get a taste of the industry.”

The pre-apprenticeship introduces participants to the industry, providing them with broad automotive knowledge, as well as specialised motor mechanic skills. Mr Petzierides explained the current demand.

“With those having completed the automotive pre-apprenticeship at The Gordon last year securing employment, businesses are now calling out for more apprentices.”

The absence of an international market of hospitality professionals has highlighted a noticeable shortage of front and back of house personnel across our regions cafes, restaurants, and event venues explained The Gordon’s Culinary and Tourism Program Manager, Leonie Mills.

Apprenticeship courses can be completed on a full or part-time basis. To find out more, visit thegordon.edu.au
