A gateway to employment at Gosnells PCYC
Gosnells PCYC have made it their mission to empower young people to reach their potential through the Institute of Training Leadership I Course, with two students in the current class securing employment, just six weeks into the course.
Certificate I in Leadership is a bridging course that assists young people to progress to further education, training, or employment through the development of leadership skills and increased community participation.
After being taught how to write professional cover letters and resumes, students practiced applying for various roles based around the recent grand opening of Taco Bell in Midland.
Students completed practice applications using Taco Bell forms and attended mock interviews conducted by Trainer Sharon Kent and Assistant Trainer Tasha Rose. To bring a bit of fun into what can be a daunting process for young people, students were also asked to design their own taco and present it to a panel of judges at Gosnells PCYC as part of their application.
A big congratulations to Dusty for being awarded best interviewee and to Anastacia who was proudly labelled as the Queen taco maker!
Not even a week after completing the mock interviews, two students gained employment at Mias Bakery in Canning Vale. PCYC were delighted to hear of their successful employment, with the students set to transition into full time work after graduating.
Leadership Trainer, Sharon Kent said, “Our goal is to give young people the tools and confidence they need to set themselves on a positive life path.”
“We couldn’t be happier with this outcome and can’t wait to hear about more of our students securing employment.”
