Graphic on screen title: Name: Jake Williams Age: 16 Apprenticeship: Certificate III Automotive Manufacturing - Bus, Truck and Trailor TAFE/Training Provider: Kangan Institute Employer: Prestige Truck Bodies (Aust) Pty. Ltd.

AUDIO: Hi I’m Jake. I’m sixteen, and I’m a vehicle body builder.

VIDEO: Jake pressing buttons and measuring.

AUDIO: Ever since I was a kid, I used to love working with my hands and just take things apart and put it back together, for better or worse.

AUDIO: Before my apprenticeship I was at school, halfway through year eleven, when I decided to come here.

AUDIO: My first day was actually quite exciting. Everyone congratulated me. It was a good feeling to have.

AUDIO: I’d recommend it to other people because there are lots of things that I never knew were possible. Going to TAFE, it does open a lot of doors for me for the future. To have all these skills is wonderful.

VIDEO: Jake uses a blowtorch.

AUDIO: I see a truck go out that I’ve done and it’s a great feeling knowing that I built that.
