Bronte Richardson

2018
Runner-up
Tasmania

Certificate III in Engineering - Technical

Bronte has always had a passion for design and production. In Year 10 she took graphic design and production classes, where her design teacher recognised her potential and suggested she apply for a school-based apprenticeship that was being offered by Direct Edge Manufacturing.

Bronte successfully applied for the position and is now undertaking Certificate III in Engineering-Technical while also completing her studies at Hellyer College.

Until her teacher approached her about the school-based apprenticeship, Bronte didn’t realise this was a viable option for her.

She said this pathway has opened to door to employment options she would not otherwise have had and is thrilled to be attending college while at the same time be employed in her dream career, engineering.
