2018 School-based Apprentice of the Year – Bronte Richardson
Direct Edge's very own Bronte Richardson was recently awarded 2018 School-based Apprentice of the Year at the Tasmanian Training Awards.
Bronte has always had a passion for design and production since she was a little girl and during high school started to develop her career through graphic design and production classes. While in year 10 Bronte’s design teacher told her about a school-based apprenticeship offer at Direct Edge Manufacturing and how she would great for the job. Bronte successfully applied for the position and is now undertaking Certificate III in Engineering - Technical, whilst also completing her studies at Hellyer College. Bronte never knew that school-based apprenticeships were really an option for her, enabling her to start her career and still attend college. Having the apprenticeship has allowed Bronte to be employed in her dream career while achieving her college and trade qualifications.
