Careers and VET Services


Congratulations to Year 12 student Lucas Sebastiano who has just completed the first three months of his school-based apprenticeship with Bluechip Electrical Services. Lucas attends school three days a week and works as an apprentice electrician every Tuesday and Wednesday.  Lucas is studying a Certificate III Electrotechnology Electrician at TAFE SA as part of his apprenticeship.

When Lucas was in Year 10, he participated in the Introduction to Construction course at Western Technical College and completed a Certificate II in Construction Pathways when he was in Year 11.

During Lucas’ VET studies, he completed a few weeks of work experience in the building industry and became very interested in the work electricians undertook. Lucas’ supervisor was so impressed with his work ethic that he recommended Lucas to Jim from Bluechip Electrical Services. This led to Lucas undertaking work experience with Bluechip Electrical Services, and as they say in the classics, the rest is history!

Lucas will receive his SACE and finish Year 12 this year and as well undertaking his Certificate III Electrotechnology Electrician and working on the tools.

Congratulations to Lucas as he begins his journey towards becoming an electrician.
