AuSkills Karratha

After holding a series of AuSkills sessions across metropolitan and regional Australia, the AuSkills breakfast held on February 13th at the Karratha International Hotel, Western Australia, was the perfect end to the successful program.

More than 30 workers attended the event entitled ‘Living and Working in Remote Regions’, facilitated by Amanda Blair discussing the challenges apprentices in the Pilbara face and some of their own adversities they had overcome.

Attendees heard from keynote speakers, Alan Tongue former Canberra Raiders Captain and Lee Bevan, Manager of Aboriginal Training Services who both shared with the audience the challenges they have faced in the apprenticeships space and how they have managed to overcome them.

Following the keynote speakers, the audience heard from a panel session which featured Mark Callaghan, WorldSkills Australia CEO, Jaycob Hargreaves, a past WorldSkills Australia National Competitor as well as both Alan and Lee.

WorldSkills Australia would like to take this opportunity to thank Amanda Blair, Lee Bevan, Alan Tongue and Jaycob Hargreaves for being a part of the AuSkills session.
