HAMISH CUTMORE: I have just completed my engineering (diesel fitting) apprenticeship and I started it while still at school. It has been an amazing experience and I recommend it to everyone.
It was fantastic being able to take up this apprenticeship while still at school. I enjoyed combining school work and on-the-job learning. It took a huge weight off my shoulders knowing I had a fulltime apprenticeship to continue with once I finished Year 12.
It's been a fantastic experience and now that I have completed and have my trade qualification I have been able to negotiate a fulltime position with B&B Machinery and will be staying on fulltime.
It's great to be able to stay here in Toowoomba and work locally.
