Opportunities are available for people seeking to work in the energy sector with pre-apprenticeship electrotechnology scholarships being offered at South Regional TAFE Bunbury campus.

The scholarships will be full fee-paying and applications for semester 2, 2018, are now open.

Energy Minister Ben Wyatt said creating career opportunities for West Australians was a continuing focus for the McGowan Government.

“The pre-apprenticeship scholarships provide a great boost for anyone looking to join the energy sector,” Mr Wyatt said.

“The scholarships are supporting real career opportunities, something that has always been at the centre of the McGowan Government’s commitment to delivering real jobs.

“I urge anyone interested in a career in the energy sector to apply for the chance to secure one of these tremendous opportunities for studying in regional WA.”

Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery said a scholarship could be great motivation for someone to take the leap and get started, including young people, career-changers and mature-age students.

“We want to ensure Western Australians are best placed to take up job opportunities, and industry has the skilled workforce it needs,” she said.

“Scholarships encourage and support students to train for a job they are passionate about, while also helping industry by encouraging skills growth in a particular area.

“I encourage people to take up this opportunity and apply – it could be the start of a new and rewarding career.”

Applications must be submitted by 10am on Monday, July 23.
