Western Power has recruited 31 new apprentices the largest intake in eight years to foster the future of Western Australia’s energy sector.

The state’s largest electricity supplier continued to provide Western Australians with vocational education and training opportunities, welcoming the entry-level apprentices in January.

This is the biggest intake of new apprentices at Western Power since 2014, and includes seven women and five Indigenous apprentices.

The nationally accredited program teaches specialised skills and training across three streams: heavy mechanical, electrical, and overhead linework.

Western Power hosts a number of school-based trainees across the business, including at its metro depots (Jandakot, Mount Claremont, Stirling and Kewdale) and regional depots (Picton, Vasse, Albany, Geraldton, Northam, Kalgoorlie, Merredin and Moora).

The apprenticeships have a nominal term of four years, with those starting January 2022 expected to finish by January 2026.

The Western Australian Government committed to creating 50 training positions each year at Western Power in 2017 and continues to deliver on this important commitment.
