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.
“Key Employment are helping me get my driving licence by providing free driving lessons to help me along the way.”
“My son is loving the KAPOW program. He said the whole group is really close and supportive of one another and he’s finding the Business course really interesting and relevant to what he wants to do with his life! That means so much to me, thanks Key Employment.”
“I think they are doing a great job. They are providing for my needs and they are there to help us. It’s nice to have some support without feeling afraid; they are very reassuring. I feel looked after and respected, and they allow support, but don’t take away your dignity.”
“I found the course very interesting and would recommend it to anyone who loves animals, like me 🙂 But I loved that it wasn’t all in class and we went on excursions aswell. It was awesome, I wished it went longer.”
“I like Key Employment because it helps you with your job seeking and career. The trainers are very helpful with all of it. It is a lot better than school and I’m looking forward to getting my career sorted.”
