Harrison’s VET journey began in Year 11 when he undertook a Certificate II in Construction Pathways, following it with the completion of a partial Certificate III in Carpentry while completing Year 12.

For the past five years, he has worked for Barossa Valley builder, Hoffmann Building Services. While completing his carpentry apprenticeship, he also commenced a Bachelor of Secondary Education at the University of South Australia.
