2020 Apprentice of the Year Winner Mehmet Topalhasan shares some insights.
Q1 - What is your current employment?
I am still completing my apprenticeship full time at Bayford Volkswagen Epping.
Q2 - Have/Are you studying further?
I am looking forward to the Volkswagen technical training pathway, I aim to become a Volkswagen master technician.
Q3 - Any suggestions for SHRF to follow up?
I would suggest that SHRF become involved with apprentices during their apprenticeship, as what you guys are doing is really great and deserves to be more well known. The first time I heard about the SHRF was at the award night earlier this year.
Q4 - How could SHRF help you more?
I would like to take the opportunity to see the facilities and collection in Melbourne. Online training or information/technical videos would be a good way to learn more about the Rolls Royce brand and different technologies.
