Student story

Picturing Daniel Roberts a Certificate III in Engineering - Mechanical Trade student

“I work for Buller Ski Lifts at Mt Buller and was offered to undertake a mature-age apprenticeship to further my skills.
 
In my job, you need to be able to think fast, work in adverse weather conditions, work as part of a team, and have a broad knowledge of mechanical technology. The Gordon facilities are great and there are plenty of tools and machinery to use to refine and practice our skills. In turn, I’m becoming better at my job and increasing my opportunities.
 
The benefits of an apprenticeship are learning real life skills, gaining real experience through your job, and at the end, you will be set up for the future.”
