HeadStart Aeroskills Superstar!

To celebrate former SDC student Will Paul’s success in the aviation industry the Premier, Jacinta Allan and Minister for Education, Ben Carroll held a Press Conference on Monday 12 February 2024 together with SDC Principal, Warwick Beynon and HeadStart NMH Assistant Director, Karen Riley.

The Aviation industry has a skills shortage of qualified engineers. Karen and Will’s school HeadStart Coordinator arranged to change the Victorian regulations to allow him to be the first SBAT student in the state to undertake this apprenticeship. William transitioned to a full-time apprenticeship with Interair in September 2023 and he has a bright future ahead in a role and industry he is passionate about and has been a trailblazer for others to follow. An amazing achievement, well done Will!
