Auto Camp Sells Out Another School Holiday Course

The September school holidays saw another group of Auto Camp students embark on three days of automotive learning at MTA Queensland’s headquarters in Eight Mile Plains.

Across mechanical, paint, panel, and electronics, 20 young men rolled up their sleeves and discovered the many career pathways available in the automotive trades.
One such man was 15-year-old Coen Meyer from Redlands.

“Mum came across it and yeah, I was down,” said Coen, who has grown up with family and friends who are into cars and who has had an interest in them himself for some time.

“To the team who presented the Auto Camp over the past three days, thank you!” wrote Coen’s mother Lisa who contacted MTA Queensland. “Coen has come home excited, enthusiastic and positive about a future career in the automotive industry. We are looking forward to more courses and opportunities to do more with MTAQ. Thanks!”

Coen may be one of the many Auto Camp students whose interest in automotive has been piqued due to their participation in the three-day course and who have gone onto a school-based apprenticeship pathway.

“We have been inundated with glowing testimonials from parents of students who have undertaken the course,” said Dr Brett Dale, MTA Queensland CEO. “We have had students progress to our pre-vocational program and then go on to commence an apprenticeship. Other students are happy to come away with some valuable life-skills.”

Enrolments for the December Auto Camp course are open now.
