Spreading the word about the opportunities available through Vocational education and training (VET) pathways.
Two WA Training Awards winners are helping to spread the word about the opportunities available through VET pathways at WA careers expos.
Megan Feaver, who won the coveted Apprentice of the Year Award in 2018, and Caitlan Noble who won the 2018 WA Trainee of the Year Award, will appear as VET Ambassadors at VET and careers events this year. They both attended the recent Careers Expo, and will be appearing at the Skills West Expo in August.
Megan left a corporate career to follow her interest in maths and electronics and trained as an electrician with South Metropolitan TAFE.
She has not looked back since successfully applying for an apprenticeship with Western Power.
Her mission is to encourage other women to enter trades that have been previously thought of as male-only careers.
Caitlan, whose passion for the health industry has seen her engage with Telethon as a volunteer for many years, has found her dream career at King Edward Memorial Hospital after qualifying with a Diploma in Anesthetic Technology.
After winning the WA title, she went on to win the Australian Training Award in her category.
Both Megan and Caitlan will be helping to inspire the next generation of STEM-related apprentices by inspiring visitors to the Jobs and Skills WA stand at each of the expos.
