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 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.”
“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.”
“I am treated like an equal individual and my opinions are listened to with respect and courtesy, and the people at Key Training make me feel like a valued member of the community.”
“I like KAPOW cause the trainers are bloody great and helpful. Looking forward to getting a job.”
“Key Employment has helped me out a lot. I’m not as shy now and Key has helped me get a job and I’m more confident.”
