Kelsey’s Traineeship Success

Kelsey Allen was employed by ATC Work Smart as a school based trainee in Retail Services during 2014 and worked one day per week during school terms at Pet Time in Mt Barker.
Since graduating school Kelsey has become employed full time and has taken on greater responsibilities including opening and closing the store and will soon assist in training a new school based trainee.

Kelsy said, “The Traineeship improved my confidence and it was great that I got my WACE certificate, I got paid for learning and gained real skills and experience that helped me get a fulltime job.”

By using the group training services of ATC Work Smart host employers receive administration and training support as well as flexibility through a choice of trainees. Employers often use the process to assess the longer term suitability of the trainee before offering them a full time position.

Interested students who require more details about school based traineeships should contact their school VET coordinator or ATC Work Smart.

Well done to Kelsey on a top effort and excellent outcome
