Western Power has welcomed 19 new apprentices, reaffirming the Cook Government's commitment to growing and developing the energy sector's workforce.

This intake is part of the Government's commitment to making 50 places available annually to support vocational education and training opportunities at Western Power, and will include 11 line workers, six electricians and two heavy diesel mechanics on four-year placements.

The apprenticeship program is run by nationally accredited expert trainers with both on and off-the-job training at Western Power's registered training organisation Power Training Services and TAFEWA.

Apprentices hired as part of this latest round will join 56 previously hired apprentices working across Western Power's graduate, business trainee, and school-based training programs.

A further intake of apprentices and graduates is expected mid-year.
