Traineeship a ‘building block for my career’
Tasmanian trainee Kelsey Pitt says her Australian Apprenticeship has provided her with the foundations for a successful career.
The 22-year-old completed her traineeship with Work & Training and the Tasmanian Government Department of Health and Human Services in April, 2013, before being successfully appointed into a permanent full-time position following an external recruitment process.
“The guidance and support I had during my traineeship was vital after coming out of school and entering the workforce,” Kelsey said.
“My traineeship was flexible to my goals and allowed me to develop in a controlled and supportive environment.”
Kelsey has also shared her experiences with students who were in a similar situation to her in secondary school.
“I am glad I did a traineeship, it has been a building block for my career,” she said.
The Kingston-resident was part of Group Training Australia’s Today’s Skills: Tomorrow’s Leaders Program in 2013 and hopes to work as a business operations manager in the future.
Kelsey has twice been a finalist for the Skills Institute Trainee of the Year and the Work & Training Ltd Trainee of the Year awards.
