Manjimup high School student Ryan Edwards has just completed his second School Based Traineeship with his host employer PH Rural in Manjimup.
Ryan completed a Certificate II in Retail during 2017 then commenced a Cert III in Retail in September 2017 which he completed in September this year.
Host employer Debbie Sanders from PH Rural said that Ryan was such an important part of her team. His work day on Friday’s as a school based trainee was invaluable to her organisation. She encouraged Ryan to also work on Saturday’s some of the time. Ryan enjoyed his work placement so much that when he completed his Cert II in Retail he was very keen to go on and complete a Cert III in Retail. Work Smart’s Business Development and training officer Tracie Yardley was there to help and support both Debbie the host employer and Ryan through both school based traineeships.
Vocational Training Services Business Development officer Ryan Piggott assisted Ryan with his training throughout both traineeships.
Now that Ryan has graduated year 12 Debbie has offered him a full time job at PH Rural. This is a great outcome for Ryan, Debbie and the Manjimup region.
