Noah's traineeship grows his passion for agriculture

/ Success Story
Noah Convey undertook an opportunity for school-based traineeship in agriculture which led to being awarded School-Based Trainee of the Year 2020.

Noah Convey was milking cows on weekends when the opportunity came up to study a Certificate II in Agriculture at South West TAFE as a school-based trainee.


He enjoyed the traineeship as it was a great chance to learn more about the industry and gain skills and knowledge to further his career.


“As soon as I started the traineeship I really got stuck into it. I knew that it was
something I wanted to do and took it seriously,” he said.


The course gave him an opportunity to find something he was really interested in that would help him in the future. The hands-on style of learning also really suited him.


Noah completed his certificate and was awarded South West TAFE’s School-Based Trainee of the Year.
He is now working on sheep and cropping farm while studying his Certificate III in Agriculture, with the goal
to one day run his own farm.


“I love what I do and really enjoy mustering and treating livestock,” he said.


“I want to let everyone know that there are different options available for people to get into an industry they love and if you stick with it you can build a really meaningful career.”
