CAREER HEAD START FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS

 

Moree Plains Shire Council offers a number of fantastic career opportunities for youth (and beyond!) with school based traineeships and apprenticeships and welcomed three new recruits.

 

Emily Cosgrove, Shauntahlee Wade and Willow Johnson-Priester attended their contract sign-up with representatives from Apprenticeship Support Australia, TAFE, Moree Secondary College and Council recently.

 

The sign-up signifies the formal commencement of the two year employment agreement, whilst the trainee/apprentice completes Year 11 and Year 12.

 

Human Resources Officer Jessica Johnstone explained Moree Plains Shire Council supports initiatives that create opportunities for young people in our community and our involvement has shown to be a positive influence in the career goals for the students.

 

“Council offers a number of fantastic career opportunities for youth with school based traineeships and apprenticeships, and these programs are an excellent opportunity to help local students develop practical skills and progress towards their chosen career,” said Mrs Johnstone.

 

Once the students complete their school based traineeships and apprenticeships they will receive formal qualifications being:

• Certificate III Early Childhood Education and Care - Emily Cosgrove (Gwydir Daycare)

• Certificate II Business Services - Shauntahlee Wade (Planning and Community Development)

• Certificate III Library and Information Services - Willow Johnson-Priester (Moree Library)

 

School based traineeships provide students with the opportunity to attain a nationally recognised Vocational Education and Training (VET) qualification in conjunction with their Higher School Certificate (HSC) and gain valuable work skills and experience through paid employment.

 

Other employers in Moree Plains are taking on School Based Trainees and Apprentices this year too!

 

If you will be in Year 11 in 2018 and are interested in undertaking a school based traineeship Council hopes to have opportunities available with recruitment beginning later this year. Students and parents should discuss available options with their school careers officer and relevant employers.
