Congratulations to our new School-Based Traineeships

Three (3) new school-based trainees have been welcomed into Warrumbungle Council’s team to undertake traineeships in Horticulture and Automotive Technology. 

Commitment to providing ongoing opportunities for youth within the Shire, these new recruits will undertake study and gain hands on practical experiences over the next two years. 

“School-Based Traineeships are one of the best ways to ensure local students have a successful transition from school to work or further study and each opportunity allows students to obtain a nationally accredited, industry recognised qualification,” said Warrumbungle Shire Council Mayor, Councillor Ambrose Doolan, “School-Based Traineeships are a great opportunity for local students to gain on-the-job experience while completing their Higher School Certificate.”

“Council advertised School-Based Trainee opportunities in late 2020 and a merit-based selection process was completed before offering the school-based traineeships to the three (3) students, two (2) from Coonabarabran High School and one (1) from Coolah Central School,” said Cr Doolan.

“These school-based trainees will be spending one day per week working for Council for the next two years while they complete a recognised qualification as part of their Higher School Certificate studies” 

“On completion of the School-Based Traineeship Program trainees will received a Certificate II qualification in either Automotive Service Technology or Horticulture,” Cr Doolan explained. 

“Council’s traineeships provide an amazing opportunity to obtain paid workplace experience as well as a recognised qualification that will improve future employment, both locally and further afield.”

“Congratulations again to our three successful applicants,” concluded Cr Doolan.
