Fox & Lillie Rural Training Scholarship with SCAA Shearer Woolhandler Training Inc
Original article by Stock & Land
Fox & Lillie has been working with SCAA Shearer Woolhandler Training Inc, providing specialised training in the wool harvesting sector, to assist with combating the shortage of shearers in the industry.
Part of the support included a $3000 Fox & Lillie Rural training scholarship designed to support people who are seeking a long-term career in the areas of shearing and wool handling but who may be unable to access funding due to previous qualifications.
In June 2018, the scholarship was awarded to Blake Dridan who works at Central Shearing Ballarat. Mr Dridan recently completed his Certificate II in Shearing with the support of SCAA Shearer Woolhander Training Inc’s Ross Paton and Central Shearing Ballarat and can now shear up to 150 sheep per day.
