Brad started KAPOW the week after he turned 15 and was keen to get stuck into work.
His class attendance was 100% and despite his LLN barrier he would listen to the trainers and was very appreciative of our support to help him through the course.
Brad successfully completed work experience at a local Panel Beater during his KAPOW program but they were not in a position to put on any new staff due to COVID19.
When Brad finished KAPOW in June he was then offered a week’s work experience at an organic farm at Sandy Beach.
Brad was offered a full-time Horticulture Traineeship with this employer and has been in his element ever since.
One of Brad’s main goals for this year was to gain employment on a farm. How good is it that this goal became a reality.
Well Done Brad.
“If it wasn’t for Key Employment I wouldn’t have the job I have now. I would not have had the confidence to apply for the job I did or do well in the interviews if it wasn’t for them. Key Employment isn’t scary! Just sign up with them and they will help you find a full-time or part-time job.”
“The trainer has helped me overcome barriers by building up confident work ethics and helped me to understand being in a formal working environment. Key Training is a social environment as well as a learning environment where we are all treated equal.”
“I like KAPOW a lot because it’s good to learn new things and gain knowledge. It’s also good because you make friends with the trainers and other kids.”
“Before becoming a client of Key Employment I had tried to get a job part time. My friends were all getting jobs, but I wasn’t able to get one. I also found trying to apply for jobs on the internet hard because I am dyslexic. Thanks to Key Employment I am now employed as a kitchen hand.”
“Key Employment are helping me get my driving licence by providing free driving lessons to help me along the way.”
