WA EDUCATION AND TRAINING ADVISER RETIRING
FRED CHAMBERS our WA Education and Training Adviser pictured at Dowerin Field Days is hanging up his boots and retiring after almost seventeen years of distinguished service. While Fred will be sadly missed we are delighted to welcome back Marissa Dewan, one of our former Australian Apprenticeships Adviser who will commence as our new WA Education and Training Adviser in mid-January 2015.
The Rural Career Guide was produced by Rural Skills Australia with support from the Australian Government through the Australian Apprenticeships Advisers’ Program.
Case studies are presented in most instances by people already working in the rural industry giving first-hand accounts of what rural jobs actually involve, who does the work and all training and qualifications.
The Rural Career Guide captures the successes from almost 20 years of our hard working network of agricultural and horticultural Education and Training Advisers. It combines a range of previously developed RSA materials and information and assembled with new and revised content. Visit the Rural Career Guide
