What's happening now...

Bee there. Where? Orange.

Are you a high school student in the Central West?
Do you love bees?
Are you interested in doing a school-based Certificate III in Beekeeping?
Yes? Then come to the showcase day on Thursday, 5 April (10am to 3.00pm). It’s being held at Kinross Wolaroi School in Orange. Students, parents, teachers and employers are all welcome to attend. Bear in mind that you MUST register; you just can’t buzz over and join in. Spaces are limited so get your name down now.
There’ll be plenty of information about what’s involved in the Cert III and the launch will be followed by a visit to Goldfields Honey Bee & Pollination Services.

So, yeah, maybe I'd like to be a roof tiler

But how do I do that? Choosing the right subjects at school can make linking up with an apprenticeship much easier. Download a list of subject choices suggested by the roof tiling industry for Years 9, 10, 11 & 12 at the Apprenticeship Engagement Forum website. http://ow.ly/FYJB30ifg3v
