A partnership between TAFE Western and industry has benefitted more
than 300 apprentices and their employers in Lithgow.
The Lithgow Skills Centre (LSC) Program which has been operating for
more than 15 years at TAFE Western offers Electrical and Fitting and
Machining apprentices the opportunity to expand their skills in a
range of areas enhancing their trade qualifications.
"Some of the important skills the students learn as part of the
Lithgow Skills Centre Program include electrical enhancements, fitting
and machining, metal fabrication projects, hydraulics and pneumatics,
first aid and communications," Brad Polak from TAFE Western told
the Lithgow Mercury.
"The Lithgow Skills Centre Program is a high quality, flexible
training program customised to meet the needs of each employer and
varying attendance patterns are negotiated by the employers for their
apprentices," he added.
This year's partners include EnergyAustralia, Skillset Workforce,
Centennial Coal and Thales Australia.
