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.
“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.”
“The service I received and the training I received was the best I’d had in years. They made the whole process easy and it wasn’t difficult to ask for help when needed. Gerry is a great trainer, and all the staff were friendly & helped at all times.”
“Key Employment has changed my life by getting me a job and helping me start my career. They check on my progress regularly and are always there to offer support if I need it.”
“This course (Training & Assessment) would be extremely difficult and complex to teach, and i thought Gerry’s manner and delivery was very helpful in such a challenging course.”
“Key contact me or the boss regularly and make sure I don’t need anything to maintain my job.”
