Coming from Gippsland, Connor made a leap of faith with his career and enrolled in the ICP31420 Certificate III in Prepress Graphic Design Production apprenticeship.
“I chose a printing apprenticeship because, since a young age, I was fascinated with creative arts and building things from nothing," Connor says.
"I'm a visual learner, which sometimes people weren't as accommodating of in [secondary] school.
“The teaching methods at Holmesglen are great, and the approach is very personal."
Holmesglen trainer Andrew Readman says Connor’s attitude and ability to work in a team have paved the way for a positive training experience and successful career.
"He is very keen, willing to learn, and, most importantly, not shy, which is fantastic. Connor is comfortable coming into class and interacting with the other students."
As part of his printing apprenticeship, Connor comes into the Chadstone campus three times a year for a block of three to four days, and works as a Graphic Designer at Payless Promotions, a company that designs and distributes Australian-wide promotional products.
