East Coast Brackets specialise in brackets for garages and sheds; from carports to aircraft hangars. They have been established in Macarthur for some eight years.
They offer Year 11 and 12 students, who are studying Metal & Engineering as part of their Higher School Certificate, the opportunity to undertake one week’s work placement in their factory.
The students really enjoy the variety of work they are given. Tasks vary from guillotining, turret punching, bending, welding, programming, packing and despatch.
Owner/Manager, Andrew McLoughlin, has been a part of the MWLP Linking Youth program since 2012 and really enjoys showcasing his industry to young people.
Andrew says “I remember the opportunity I was given when I was younger. It’s how I got into the trade. It’s great to be in a position where I can pass on some skills. Some of the work placement kids have come back as paid casuals. They are also appreciative of the time we put into them. They fit into our team well.” (more…)
MWLP provides a brokerage service that allows some 6,800 HSC students to participate in two weeks of learning in the workplace during Years 11 & 12.
MWLP is a specialist in the provision of career and transition support services, targeting young people and related stakeholders and influencers (including parents, business and industry, educators and training providers and the wider community).
MWLP has over 20 years’ experience in engaging with business and industry across a broad range of industry areas and has extensive employer networks.
“You can make a difference in someone’s life just by mentoring them for one week. It will help you and the student, grow and mature as an individual. We have had some excellent students resulting in us hiring four waitresses, one kitchen hand and multiple apprentices – all from the MWLP program.”

“It’s a good opportunity to see the calibre of Macarthur’s youth. We get to screen those with potential that will ultimately benefit the company. The students are encouraged to ask lots of questions to assess whether this industry is right for them. It’s a win-win situation.”
