School Based Trainee of the Year
Park Ridge State High School’s, Mark Cave was the winner of the School-Based Trainee of the Year Award at Logan City Council’s 16th annual Trainee and Apprentice Awards.
The awards celebrate Council staff who epitomise the organisation’s values whilst undertaking on a nationally-recognised qualification.
Mayor Darren Power said Council was proud to provide employment opportunities for local young people.
“We offer more than 20 traineeships and apprenticeships each year across Council’s diverse offering of programs and services,” Cr Power said.
“For many of these young people, it’s their first step into the workforce and the skills they gain can set them up for an incredibly successful future.”
Cr Power said this year’s cohort of trainees and apprentices had experienced circumstances very unusual to previous years.
“As Council staff adapted to working during a pandemic, so did our trainees and apprentices. As a result, they have developed an extra sense of resilience while also completing their qualifications,” he said.
“These people are the future leaders of our city, and demonstrate the great potential of young people in our community.”
Applications are now open for the next intake of traineeships and apprenticeships with Council.
Cr Power said successful candidates would benefit from learning and development opportunities and job-readiness training in addition to completing qualifications.
Positions are available across a wide range of areas including allied health, business, civil construction, animal management, engineering, events, libraries, sport and recreation, pest management, wastewater treatment and heavy vehicle mechanics.
