Australia’s largest luxury motor yacht builder, Riviera, is encouraging its apprentice graduates to participate in a new initiative aimed at enhancing their skills and career pathways.

Over a six-month term, graduates of the Riviera apprenticeship programme team up with a mentor at Riviera’s Coomera production facility as part of Study Gold Coast’s Kickstart programme.

Graduates work with mentors, either onsite or via electronic correspondence or mobile communications. The course director facilitates the programme using a video link.

The Kickstart programme is designed to further develop Riviera’s newest tradespeople and fast-track their professional, commercial and business skills. Each participant will work closely with their Riviera team mentor to work on a special project that aligns with their industry skills and capabilities.

It provides a tremendous opportunity for graduates to engage with the highly experienced Riviera team across multiple levels and includes vital interaction with key team leaders.
