Introducing our recent traineeship graduates

“Firstly, I’d like to thank the staff at the Wajarri Community Office for having me through this journey of mine. Before becoming an intern I graduated at Geraldton Senior College and finished my Certificate ll in Business and continued my certificate lll in business the year after.  I’ve always wanted to help my elders and culture in a way, which I think this job is perfect.

As an intern/first time working experience I didn’t know how to do a lot of things. I asked questions and if I made a mistake, I would fix it. One of the most valuable skills that I have gained from my internship is the ability to speak with people in a professional setting, as never had the confidence to do so before.

Through October-September, WWBL moved into the office which I was happy to be a part of, around this time I had been employed – which was so exciting!

I definitely have gained and developed skills since working here such as computer skills, multi-tasking, confidence in my speech and self-confidence.

Coming into 2019… it was so busy at the start due to the schooling programs we have. When we get the time, we sit down and brainstorm better ways to process and overcome things, which is one of the reasons I love working here. It is an amazing working environment to be in.”

“I started as a cleaner in the office helping the girls with odd jobs but with the new database system being implemented I had to learn fast about computers.  I would love to learn more skills in dealing with clients and working with the community.”

“When I started my certificate III in business I had no idea that I would have actually completed it and come as far as I have. The first work placement I was offered was here at WYAC and I am glad to have had completed my work experience here with such a hardworking and supportive team; and get my first job out of it.  

It was a bit challenging to begin with but I’m learning and getting more confident every day. I hope to have a lot more skills and confidence by the end of my six months.”
