Adam De Fazio
Certificate II in Building and Construction (Bricklaying, Carpentry, Painting and Decorating)
Adam De Fazio impressed his teachers and peers alike while studying his VET in Schools course in building at Kangan Institute.
'I come from a hands-on family and I didn't feel that school was equipping me with all the things I needed. I looked at my options and decided that this course at Kangan Institute was right for me,' Adam said.
Philip Love, coordinator of VET in Schools Building program, is quick to sing the praises of Adam and his commitment to study.
'Adam is a model student who completed all of his subjects with a high level of competence and he often worked hard helping his peers,' Philip said.
Adam has demonstrated his passion for building in a number of ways. He is now working as an apprentice carpenter and is more than happy to put in the hard yards working over time and on weekends. After completing his carpentry apprenticeship, Adam hopes to become a teacher.
