School Based Apprentice Story - Adelaide Hills Toyota

Posted by Statewide Group Training SA on 1 March 2020

Matthew Brown - Full time Light Vehicle Mechanic at Adelaide Hills Toyota since 2015
 

Matthew started his apprenticeship in 2015 while he was completing year 12. He has now completed his full 4 year apprenticeship and is happily employed full time at Adelaide Hills Toyota servicing and repairing new cars.

How did you get started in your apprenticeship?
In year 11 (2014), my school had a course called PLP (Personal learning Plan). Part of the course involved doing mock interviews for jobs. Through that I won an opportunity to do 2 days work experience with Adelaide Hills Toyota. From there I was offered a Light Vehicle Mechanic apprenticeship.1 day a week and continuing year 12 for 4 days a week. This was followed by 4 years full time at Adelaide Hills Toyota to complete my apprenticeship.

What apprenticeship options did you have?
My only other viable option was through MTA (Motor Trade Association).

What was good about being employed through Statewide Group Training?
They're a small business and offer personal attention. I have my own field officer, James, who has been fantastic and helpful at every step. Statewide Group Training also looked after my pay and entitlements. 

What do you like most about working at Adelaide Hills Toyota?
I love that I still learn something new every day and that Adelaide Hills Toyota is a family orientated business with a close knit team. It's close to home with good pay and good people.
