My name is Joshua. I was born and raised in the Southern Highlands, living on a rural property. Whilst looking for an apprenticeship I began to realise that they are not always readily available for someone new to the industry. At this point I began to look outside of the area boosting my travel time to over an hour. But through Hume Coal’s generous funding and 1300apprentice, I have successfully been able to gain an apprenticeship as a Fitter Machinist in the local area.
I would like to thank both Hume Coal and 1300apprentice for the amazing opportunity you have given me to expand my knowledge and enabling me to set up my career in the industry.
