Jobs Open for Clarence Youth


With the assistance of a Schools First Award from the National Australia Bank the
Clarence Valley Industry Education Forum launched a campaign in June this year with the simple aim of increasing the number of school-based traineeships available to Clarence Valley students.
The response has been overwhelming.
“All up we will move from just 13 school-based traineeships to a likely 73 in 2011 which is an outstanding result”, said Ron Phillips – Forum Chair.
Ninety-eight percent of the traineeships are with the private sector.
“What’s really exciting is that we have a whole new group of businesses and employers engaging with the program, many are exploring traineeships for the first time”.
School-based traineeships in the Clarence are ready and waiting to be filled in
horticulture, business, retail, hospitality and sawmill processing; with engineering, hairdressing and hospitality coming soon.
All students or parents need to do is call 6641 5042 and make an application for the traineeship of interest.
“This is a great way to get ahead of the game. Once you’re trained your skills can take you anywhere including full time employment, university or further study and training”, said Mr Phillips.
