‘My name is Will Powell from Year 11. During week two of this term I attended work placement for my Metal and Engineering class. I completed this work placement at Masterfoods Australia in Berkeley Vale. At Masterfoods I was able to gain experience in tig welding, as well as further my skills working on the lathe and using other equipment and tools such as the band saw and the mill. Completing my work placement at Masterfoods allowed me to experience what it means to work in a manufacturing industry, while also learning new skills to assist me in my Metals and Engineering course. Thank you to Mr Brown for preparing me for this work placement.’
