Students gain insight to the automotive industry
THE Certificate I in Automotive Vocational Preparation short course saw a number of Year 10 students from Stanthorpe State High School gain an insight into the automotive industry, specifically mechanics.
As part of the course, students had the privilege of visiting supportive local automotive businesses including Central Motors in town and Pete’s Hot Rods & Resto Shop at Cottonvale.
They also had the benefit of visiting Stanthorpe Wreckers who showed outstanding community spirit by fencing off an area and providing a number of vehicles for the students to work on.
This made the course even more hands-on and the students loved the opportunity to tinker and learn by doing.
The course, run through the Granite Belt and Border College of Trades, is designed to develop student interest in mechanics and give an insight into possible automotive industry pathways.
Many thanks to all the businesses, teachers and students who participated in the program and helped make it such a success.
