VET pathway led to electrician career for Abram

Jul 27, 2022

This story is part of the 2022 HSC Study Guide. See all 11 stories. Abram Liddell spent his childhood helping out with electrical jobs, and then topped the HSC exam for Electrotechnology – a success he attributes to the pure enjoyment of what he was studying. Liddell completed his HSC at St John’s College in Dubbo, which included a Certificate II in electrotechnology (Career Start) through NSW Education Standards Authority’s VET (Vocational Education and Training) course at the Dubbo campus of the Western Institute of TAFE NSW. The Certificate II is a nationally recognised VET qualification that provides a pathway into any electrotechnology trade. Abram Liddell came first in the HSC exam for electrotechnology. He is now an apprentice electrician. Credit:Louise Kennerley Liddell said he chose his subjects carefully and sought the advice of his school’s VET co-ordinator. He travelled to his local TAFE campus once a fortnight for his studies. “I always did well in my exams because I genuinely loved the course and thought TAFE taught it really well,” he said. Liddell said the most challenging aspect of his HSC exams was the guilt he felt when taking a break. “I believe an apprenticeship is a great foundation. I’m earning money, I’ve got no education debt and a stable career.” Abram Liddell “If I allowed myself time off to rest, I would feel guilty about not studying,” he said. “The whole year I was in gear and couldn’t relax without feeling bad about it. “I put a lot of pressure on myself to perform and couldn’t switch that thinking off.” Advertisement Liddell said there was a great deal of value in understanding his own limits and working within them, particularly with sleep habits. “You can study all you want for the exam tomorrow, but if you’re tired you will always perform worse than if you hadn’t studied the day before. A great car isn’t great if it’s out of fuel.” He adopted the strategy of not studying late at night, particularly during the exam period.

You can also speak to a careers advisor, an industry expert or visit the self-service website to help you understand educational pathways to match you with the skills you need to find employment. “I felt and saw my mental performance decrease when I was tired or not well-fed, so that was a big factor in that decision. It’s easy to lose your perception of what your body needs when you’re under pressure.” Liddell opted not to go to university but to continue his electrotechnology studies at TAFE, and started an electrical apprenticeship on December 6, a week after his HSC exams finished. “I believe an apprenticeship is a great foundation. I’m earning money, I’ve got no education debt and a stable career.” Save
