September 2011 – Accent Ventilation Pty. Ltd.

Outstanding Business of the Month:  Accent Ventilation Pty. Ltd.

Established in 1963 Accent Ventilation Pty. Ltd. specialises in multi story building ventilation and internal wet area ventilation eg bathroom, laundry and kitchen exhaust.


They have been offering HSC students work placement opportunities since 2007.  The students are studying Metal & Engineering as part of their curriculum and this work placement is an essential component of the course.

Graham Warrington, Installation Coordinator, is passionate about our youth and the MWLP program.  “I wish it was around in my day.  I had to continually knock on doors before I got to show someone my potential.  This program is fantastic.  There’s nothing to lose and everything to gain for both the business and the student.  We offered one student an apprenticeship in the same week he commenced his work placement.  He was exceptionally gifted and is now a Year 2 Apprentice with us” says Graham.

Graham takes the time to tailor the work to suit the student.  They spend time learning about recycling, folding, notching, spot welding, cutting sheet metal and using hand tools.  They are treated like a trades assistant exposing them to the real world of work.

As this month’s exceptional winner, Accent Ventilation Pty. Ltd. will receive profiling in the Macarthur Chronicle, one month’s free advertising on C91.3FM, exposure on and thanks to Event Cinemas Campbelltown, Gold Class movie tickets.
