Construction Training Fund
This year some Year 10 students were given the opportunity to apply for a scholarship with the Construction Training Fund. The scholarship is in the Certificate II in Building and Construction, and includes mentoring, career advice and meetings with industry employers.
I would like to congratulate Blake Taylor, who was successful in his application and will be attending TAFE and work placements over the next two years while completing his WACE.
This is the second year in a row that a Lakeland student has successfully gained one of these scholarships. Our Year 11 student Beau Randell also gained a scholarship last year and has been attending South Metro TAFE this year. Beau is currently attending a work placement with a construction company.
I look forward to seeing more Lakeland students completing training and hopefully continuing with employment in the construction industry.
