Our Bunbury Training and Business Development Officer Tracie Yardley recently met with Coleen Devlin post Options Coordinator Girls Academy Perth, Murray Phillips A/HR manager WA Country Health Service –SW and Keanna Bennell Full Time Cert III Business Trainee at Regional Aged Care Bunbury. Colleen is preparing an article for the Girls Academy website and the local Bunbury paper and was following up on the success of the girls academy girls that had completed School Based Traineeships last year.
Colleen was so impressed with WACHS commitment to the girls that she wanted to meet with Murray, to personally thank him for his ongoing commitment to growing WACHS indigenous work force and the success we are having with completion of their traineeships.
WACHS have increased their intake of Aboriginal school based trainees for 2018 with girls from various schools, all working in different regional areas including Collie and Manjimup.
Keanna is very happy working at WACHS where she wants to finish her Cert III in Business and then go on to University to study nursing. Keanna epitomises what starting an SBT and sticking at it can achieve and said the skill set she has developed in her SBT and now her FT traineeship are invaluable. She would encourage other students to have a goal to work towards and be committed to that goal to achieve a successful outcome.
Work Smart are proud to be working with such a terrific bunch of girls and a great host employer and are looking forward to helping them achieve such excellent results.
