Ampcontrol has employed a record number of apprentices, with 55 new employees set to challenge the future to help make global net zero a reality.
Ampcontrol offers multiple career pathways across its Australian operations, including its Apprentice and Graduate Program, encouraging students to pursue careers in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) industry.
“At Ampcontrol, we’re dedicated to developing pathways for people to enter the workforce, especially in STEM. We are excited to be welcoming 55 new apprentices into our business and supporting these individuals in an environment that fosters ongoing learning and development, training, and progression. In 2024, we will also expand our established career pathway programs to include cadetships and school-based apprenticeships. The variety of avenues provides opportunities for undergraduates and high school students to gain the skills and experience to support a successful STEM career,” says Mikhaila Halford, Ampcontrol Workforce Solutions Manager.
Of the 55 new apprentices starting in 2024, 38 are starting in NSW, 9 in Queensland and 8 in WA. The types of apprentices employed are electrical, fabrication, mechanical fitting and machining.
Ampcontrol provides students with firsthand experience in solving complex problems. Through the Ampcontrol Apprentice Program and Graduate Program, students experience multiple aspects of the business and can be part of projects that showcase innovation and develop problem-solving skills early on in their careers.
