CVIAQ and Volvo showcase career paths to students

The Commercial Vehicle Industry Association of Queensland (CVIAQ) has enabled school students to investigate career paths in the industry during a visit to Volvo Commercial Vehicles’ Wacol assembly plant in Brisbane on 13-14 November.

The study tour saw students from Stretton College, Glenala State High School and Ipswich Grammar School given a host of information on careers within the Volvo organisation including trades in the manufacturing and service and repair sectors along with administration, spare parts and sales operations.

Volvo senior staff, service technicians and apprentices spoke with students and teachers during a lunch break detailing a range of activities offering career opportunities for school leavers.

In the last 12 months the CVIAQ has organised over 400 students from 18 schools to investigate, first-hand, career opportunities in the commercial vehicle industry and reports there has been enormous interest from those due to finish their education.
