Hearing from some of our apprentices, Connor Fryar, Rail Traction Apprentice said:
“UGL has provided me with great exposure to the apprenticeship I am doing. The others in my TAFE class are not getting anywhere near the experiences that I have achieved with UGL.”
Upon the successful completion of the program, it is anticipated our apprentices will be offered a full-time role, so they can continue to build on their knowledge learnt and provide capability to UGL.
“I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do. I came in for the interview, saw tools and big machines and it intrigued me. Best decision I have made to this day.” - Shayna Logan, Mechanical Apprentice
