Employer: Canberra Institute of Technology
Richard has 25 years’ experience in the automotive industry and has been teaching at Canberra Institute of Technology since 2016. During the COVID-19 lockdown, Richard implemented innovative online platforms with simulated practicals within each apprentice’s workplace to keep his students learning. His online program minimised the impact of the pandemic on the student’s training and is now used by Toyota and Tesla Australia as training sessions for their staff’s personal development. Richard’s dedication and ability to develop a flexible delivery model has broadened the capabilities of the program and effectiveness of the apprentices when returning to their dealerships.
