Campbell McKenzie - General Engineering Apprentice

A former student of Central Southland College, Campbell enrolled in the July 2007 ACE Engineering programme which was held over 20, instead of the usual 38, weeks at the Southern Institute of Technology.


The condensed pre apprenticeship programme allowed Campbell to complete all the requirements of the programme in a shorter period of time, thus allowing him to begin his apprenticeship earlier than previously would have been the case.


Having successfully completed all the requirements of the programme Campbell was offered an apprenticeship with Southern Group Training which placed him with Alliance Matura to complete the remaining Level 3 and Level 4 practical unit standards.


The theory units are taught through off job training via weekly evening classes at SIT and require regular attendance if the apprentice is to make good steady progress towards the completion of his apprenticeship.
