AJ Baker & Sons First Female Apprentice

AJ Baker & Sons extends a warm welcome to our first female apprentice, Amara.

Amara joins our team in South Australia, securing a four-year apprenticeship meaning Amara will now be able to commence a Certificate III in Engineering (Fabrication), a goal she has worked towards for some time. 

In an article by the Ai Group’s Apprentice & Trainee Centre (ATC), Amara expressed her joy in being accepted as an adult apprentice.

Amara has had a long path to gaining the apprenticeship, finding herself competing with school leavers and people with qualifications that she is yet to gain. 

“They prefer someone straight out of school – you’re young, you’re fit. Many don’t want to take on adult apprentices without a certificate behind them or some sort of experience.” Amara said.

Amara will be working at AJ Baker & Sons and will be employed by Ai Group for the duration of her apprenticeship. 

 AJ Baker & Sons State Manager in South Australia, John McBurnie said “She had the drive to convince me,” and “For someone to go out and buy a welder, they must be pretty keen.”
