WA Update

Term 3 has been yet another crazy term for our trainees here in WA! Over the last term, a handful of our trainees have been heavily involved in sporting competitions on a national level and many are playing in finals series over the next few weeks for their respective winter sports, all while maintaining their working requirements for the traineeship which has been very impressive to see!


We are in the middle of a very successful recruitment drive in WA with the hope of employing 15 new trainees across both Belmont Oasis Leisure Centre and Morley Sport and Recreation Centre. It has been a pleasure meeting all of the applicants so far and I look forward to completing a Sign-up night with all new successful trainees over the coming weeks and getting them started with their training.


During another COVID-disrupted term, we managed to squeeze in a TAFE session with one of our new lecturers, Dec. He covered the Social Media unit, introduced the Sport and Recreation Sessions cluster, and set all trainees in attendance up on Microsoft Teams so they have very access to their TAFE lecturers at any time.

Another TAFE session has also been locked in for the second week of the school holidays, so I look forward to seeing as many trainees there as possible!

Awards and congratulations

Laura and I would like to acknowledge Sophia Pitaro and Desiree Baxter who have both been named as finalists for the WA State Training Awards, and for the NMTAFE Ambassador Program in the School-based Apprentice of the Year category.

Kyeden Heir has also been nominated as a finalist for the NMTAFE Ambassador Program in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Student of the Year category.

We are so incredibly proud of the hard work these young adults have dedicated to their traineeship and look forward to celebrating their accomplishments with them at the upcoming awards ceremonies in September!
