Are you a young Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander aged 15-24 years
looking for a start in the electrical trade?
emPOWER is a 10 week pre-apprenticeship program designed to open up
amazing opportunities for young Aboriginal people in electrical
apprenticeships. The program is fully funded by the Australian
Government Department of Employment as part of the Empowering Youth Initiatives.
Program Coordinator, Lyn Wilson, says emPOWER is all about giving you
the skills and confidence to be recruited as an apprentice
electrician. emPOWER has many partner organisations who want to employ
graduates of the course as apprentices.
"We want you to succeed. In this program, we all work together."
There are two options for this full-time, 10-week course:
Dylan Narsamma, a recent graduate of empower shares his thoughts on
“At TAFE I fitted in. I wasn’t treated as a child, and that helped
me. “When I finished the course, I had interviews with all companies,
and was offered a load of apprenticeships. I took up the job with NECA.”
Dylan is now a third-year apprentice. He loves his career, and is
powering up for the future.
