Steven Marshall – Training Operations Leader

Outside of work Steve is the President of Lalor Bloods, loves ‘90s pop music and cooks a mean spit.

Steve has had considerable involvement in the electrical and communications industry over the last 20 years as an A Grade electrician, business owner and teacher. Through this he has developed a passion for developing and mentoring teams to see their true potential beyond their roles and embrace change with positivity and excitement.

He is a fast mover with the capability to coach teams through cultural changes with flexibility, positivity and a long term end goal. This has been crucial in the ongoing success of the implementation of a variety of campaigns launched in the trade school to increase the participation of women in the trade.

As the Training Operations Lead, Steve is responsible for the Strategic Direction of the Training Operations within the trade school, including the management of the teaching staff, leading the ‘Let’s Connect’ Mentor Program and the focus of investment and sponsorship funds for practical assessments and installations.

Since starting with NECA Education & Careers in 2015 Steve has been instrumental in the implementation of the ‘Pipeline Project’ and Let’s Connect program. The ‘Pipeline Project’ sees A Grade electricians mentored into becoming trade school teachers through a transitional process. This ensures all our teaching staff are passionate, dedicated and understand current industry practices. Our Let’s Connect program sees all pre-apprentices and apprentices that attend our trade school allocated a mentor to support then through the transition from young adulthood to adulthood including respectful relationship awareness, mental health support and difficulties at work and school.

Steve’s why is to mentor and support students through by being a positive influence and helping them achieve their goals.

“I love the culture, staff and students. The staff are great and I consider them friends and family not just work colleagues. NECA Education & Careers also gives me the opportunity to grow and learn as an individual to be the best I can be.”
