Recognition for Tiwi Apprentices

Recognition for Tiwi Apprentices

Categories: Apprenticeships, Wurrumiyanga, News

In 2019, the CDU Automotive Team were very supportive of our Tiwi apprentices, Caine Bower and Samson Puruntatameri who are doing mechanics apprenticeships. Both men gained Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) for prior work experience.

With his children all at school, Sampson is able to commit to his apprenticeship which requires frequent trips to Darwin. He is incredibly grateful for the support of his partner Dorothea and children who are very proud of their dad.

Caine has already shown us what a great mentor and inspiration he can be. We hope that when Caine completes his trade qualification he will support and supervise other aspiring Tiwi mechanics.

We would also like to congratulate Wayne Tipungwuti and Wilfred Pilakui who commenced their apprenticeships with BIHA in November 2019. We look forward to supporting them throughout their apprenticeships and helping more Tiwi people to become qualified tradesmen.

TITEB offers management services to Tiwi employers, including handling the paperwork, travel and training arrangements for their apprentices. Our aim is to make taking on Tiwi apprentices as easy as possible for the employer and the apprentice to ensure that more Tiwi get qualified and competent in their chosen trade.
