Certificate III in Business
Teah McCallum started as a school-based trainee, completed Year 12 and transitioned into work with the NT Government as a full-time trainee. She completed her Certificate III in Business earlier in 2017 and is now working to complete her Certificate IV. All her training and hard work has allowed Teah to secure a temporary position as a program advisor, well above the trainee level that she commenced at, and above her normal substantive position. As an employee of the ‘Employment Programs Unit’ for the NT Government, she is a strong advocate for training and development and has had opportunities to participate in and promote employment programs in job fairs, career expos and open days.
Teah was recognised for her outstanding contribution to vocational education and training at the 2017 Australian Training Awards where she was a finalist for the Australian Apprentice (Trainee) of the Year Award after being named winner of this category at the Northern Territory Training Awards.
