Schools to Industry Tour visits Moreton Bay

As part of the CVIAQ (Commercial Vehicle Industry Association of Queensland) Schools to Industry Tour, CVIAQ member companies, Brisbane Isuzu Burpengary branch, and specialised vehicle manufacturer SVM Queensland were visited by more than 60 secondary school students from the Moreton Bay region on July 22; providing students with informative sessions showcasing the career options that they have to offer within their businesses.

This was the first tour to be jointly organised by the CVIAQ and the Schools Business Community Partnership Broker, Moreton Bay Youth Attainment & Transitions Consortium (MBYATC).

Educational institutions that took part on the day were Bray Park State High School, Deception Bay State High School, Tullawong State High School, Arethusa College, Edmund Rice Flexible Learning Centre and Caboolture Special School.

The day has been hailed a success with a great deal of student interest shown. Students and teaching staff were able to see the activities involving many of the trades in the manufacturing, and the service and repair sectors, as well as sales, spare parts and sales operations.

Other School to Industry Tours scheduled for this year include the Logan schools tour to be hosted by Queensland Thermo King and MTU Detroit Diesel Australia; the Darling Downs schools tour to be hosted by The Brown and Hurley Group in Toowoomba and Transport Welding Engineering; and the Brisbane South West schools tour to be hosted by Western Star Trucks Australia and Brisbane Truck Centre.
