Mia Fleming, an Erindale College student, has embarked on the path to becoming a skilled professional in Automotive Refinishing Technology through Sarina Russo Apprenticeships.

Mia's has made a decision to pursue a Certificate III in Automotive Refinishing Technology, specialising in vehicle spray painting, setting the stage for a career in a field she was passionate about. The unique aspect of Mia's journey lies in her choice to embrace this path as a female school-based apprentice, challenging stereotypes and breaking barriers in a traditionally male-dominated industry.

Central to Mia's success in acquiring an apprenticeship is the pivotal role played by Sarina Russo Apprenticeships (SRA). SRA has served as a matchmaker, connecting enthusiastic apprentices like Mia with employers who recognise and value their potential. By facilitating these connections, SRA actively contributes to the development of a skilled and diverse workforce for the future.

Mia's journey gained momentum through a transformative work experience at Tony Farrugia Bodyworks Pty. Ltd., an esteemed establishment in the automotive refinishing sector. Engaging in day-to-day operations and immersing herself in the intricacies of vehicle spray painting, Mia discovered not just a job but a passion that fueled her enthusiasm for the craft.
