Rekeisha  Voss-  VET Alumni, and Anthony Di Cristofaro- VET Alumni,

This episode explores experience of two mature aged apprentices, Anthony Di Cristafaro and Rekeisha Voss.

They both are sharing with us their experience and their journey and the decision to become a mature age apprentice or a trainee . Anthony and Rekeisha share with us how they made that decision, the issues that they had to confront in changing their jobs as a mature age apprentice, and then talk about insights and the success that they had in making that decision.
We finish up with some insights and advice from both Anthony and to Keisha, to parents, to people considering changing their jobs and to career advisors.
