The initiative by Aurecon Group to invest in and nurture school-based apprentices is a workforce strategy helping to build their pipeline of outstanding young talent. Aurecon is the host employer partnering with Ai Group Apprentice and Trainee Centre which manages the training and apprenticeship arrangements. 

Samuel Ivanoff (pictured), Aurecon’s school-based apprentice in South Australia, was recently nominated as a finalist in the South Australian Training Awards. Samuel, who is currently a Year 12 student at St Patrick’s Technical College, is undertaking his school-based apprenticeship in Applied Technologies.  

Samuel plans to become an engineer, designing structures he can one day bring to life, and to travel and learn from engineers around the world. He says his school-based apprenticeship has given him the opportunity to learn and develop his skills, building confidence in his abilities and excitement at the opportunities ahead. He says he has dreamed of designing a building that would actually be built one day and is currently working on designing a house that his parents are hoping to build in the future.

Aurecon and Ai Group Apprentice & Trainee Centre are proud of Samuel for the Training Award nomination and his achievements to date. Aurecon will benefit from their connections with such a talented young individual as they manage their workforce development planning into the future.
