Ampcontrol welcomes largest apprentice cohort yet

Ampcontrol has accepted 56 new applicants into its 2024 Apprentice Program. This is the largest intake of apprentices in Ampcontrol history, the company said, up 115% on the previous year.

Undertaken over a nominal four-year period, the Apprentice Program combines part-time study with structured work experience in trades such as electrotechnology, fabrication, electronics, electrical fitting, mechanical fitting and engineering.

The Apprentice Program makes up one stream of Ampcontrol’s Career Pathways Program, which aims to help students acquire the necessary skills and experience for a career in the field of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics). Ampcontrol said its Apprentice Program has a high retention rate, with 93% of apprentices who started in 2020 and finished in 2023 now in trade roles across the company.

“Ampcontrol is expanding our operations throughout Australia, and we highly value the support provided by our apprentices to serve our customers better,” said Leigh Stefanszyn, Ampcontrol Executive General Manager – People and Engagement.

“We are encouraged to see our highest number of female apprentices ever within the program, paving the way for women in STEM. With our Pathway Programs continually expanding, we are helping to grow the workforce of the future, fostering new thinking within our business and delivering innovative solutions to our customers.”
