Congratulations to Crystal Gillard-Buswell from Newton Moore Senior High School in Bunbury for recently completing her School Based Traineeship in Business.  A big thank you to Nicki and the team at WA Country Heath Services at the Bunbury Hospital that provided on the job training to support the Certificate 2 in Business Qualification studied by Crystal.  WA Country Health has been a fantastic supporter of high school students in School Based Traineeships in the South West.  Not only did Crystal obtain a fully funded qualification that she used towards her WACE, but she also obtained great real life work experience and great references to put on her resume when she starts looking for work after completing Year 12 in late September this year.

From the 1st of July the WA Government and the Department of Training and Workforce Development have announced new financial incentives for employers to take on Apprentices and Trainees including School Based Trainees.  If you are an employer and you have an interest in supporting young people in the local community please contact ATC Work Smart for advice on how we can support you with  Apprenticeships, Traineeships and School Based Traineeships.
