As a show of commitment to the sustainability of the Tasmanian wool industry, and to acknowledge the integral role that wool classers play in preparing Tasmania’s wool clip to the highest standard, Wool Solutions and ORTOVOX are offering a Wool Classer Scholarship in 2019.

The scholarship recipient will receive reimbursement of their annual tuition fees for 2019, placement in the shearing shed of an ORTOVOX WOOL PROMISE farm in 2020 for up to four weeks paid employment (in the role of wool handler), and the opportunity to learn from an experienced wool classer. Mentoring by Wool Solutions staff is also available.

All TasTAFE students completing AHC41316 – Certificate IV in Wool Classing during 2019, and meeting all scholarship terms and conditions, are automatically eligible. Shortlisted students will be invited to attend an interview towards the end of 2019 with a panel of industry representatives.

Further details and full terms and conditions can be found in the Wool Classing Scholarship 2019 flyer
