Steve Harrison is the Aquaculture Trainer and leader of the Year 11/12 educational programs at the Huon Valley Trade Training Centre (HVTTC).

His Fellowship takes him to Norway and Scotland in April and May of 2016.

Steve has worked as a trainer in aquaculture for over ten years and works in close partnership with Tasmanian salmon companies Tassal, Huon Aquaculture and Petuna. Together with the Beacon Foundation, the companies have worked together to create pathways to employment through the use of Australian School- based Apprenticeships. Both Norway and Scotland have well-developed and extensive programs which directly connect the final years of schooling with employment and apprenticeship pathways in Aquaculture.

Steve’s Fellowship will enable him to find out how these models are implemented on a national level, and how sustainable partnerships between schools and employers are maintained on a local level. Learnings from this Fellowship will enable Steve and the Tasmanian industry to further refine their model and create more employment opportunities for young Tasmanians in regional areas.

When he’s not at work maintaining the HVTTC’s aquaculture systems almost seven days a week, Steve likes to spend his time on the water as a competitive sailor. He and his team campaign his Thompson 7 sports-boat Temptation in major regattas on the east coast of Australia.
