School Based Traineeships being recruited

Warrumbungle Shire Council is now recruiting for current school students to participate in a School Based Traineeships program commencing in 2019. ‚Äč

Council is calling for applications from eligible students to undertake School Based Traineeships in the fields of Horticulture, Tourism, Automotive Servicing and Water Industry Operations.

Warrumbungle Shire Council Mayor, Councillor Denis Todd said, "School Based Traineeships are a great opportunity for local students to combine their Higher School Certificate with workplace training, which is one of the best ways to ensure local students have a successful transition from school to work."

"Each of these opportunities will allow students to obtain a nationally recognised qualification and will aid the transition into the world of work and further study."

"This is also a great way for the students to gain skills and be paid for it at the same time. Students will be required to work on the job for between 100 and 130 days over the two years" said Cr Todd.

School Based Traineeships are open to students who are currently enrolled in a school within the Warrumbungle Shire Council area and will be commencing either Year 10 or Year 11 in 2019.

Cr Todd said, "Council is encouraging all eligible students to apply for this great opportunity as it is programs like the School Based Traineeships which provide our local students with strong career opportunities."

Applications are to be submitted online only via Council’s Positions Vacant page on the Council website at www.warrumbungle.nsw.gov.au.

Applicants must provide a Letter of Support from their school with their application to be eligible to apply. It is also recommended that students upload a copy of their current resume.
