Looking to secure an apprenticeship when he leaves school this year, seventeen-year-old Cody Foord is enjoying the early days of his TAFE at School electrotechnology course.

Ipswich local Cody decided to kick start his career by choosing a TAFE at School course, a Certificate II in Electrotechnology (UEE22011), to give himself the jolt needed.

"Starting a career can be a tough decision especially when you are not quite sure what you want to do," said Cody.

"At school I have been doing business studies as well as automotive and small amounts of electrical studies; it's those studies and the TAFE at School program which have given me a sense of direction and the spark I needed in helping me choose my career," he continued.

Learning the basics of working and solving problems, sustainable work practices and the selection and use of materials, tools and components for electrical work has been a great foundation for Cody's future.

"The most enjoyable aspect of my course so far is learning new skills and making new friends with similar interests," he said.

"The skills I have learnt in my short time with TAFE Queensland have made the whole experience extremely enjoyable. The teaching staff are helpful and supportive both in the classroom and outside, even suggesting future career opportunities I should look at."

As for his next steps, Cody is working hard and is excited about his future.

"I'm really looking forward to continuing my electrical study and getting an apprenticeship," said Cody.
