Celebarting VPG Participants Murhula, Sanja and Kyarra-Lee Success

FNQ youth employment

VPG delivers the perfect employment fit, transforming the lives of three Transition to Work (TtW) participants.

TtW participants, Murhula, Sanja and Kyarra-Lee, successfully secured a construction traineeship at Centacare FNQ, where they will participate in a 24-week paid employment program and gain a nationally recognised qualification.

Through the TtW program the successful participants underwent intensive pre-employment training to build on their strengths and talents in preparation for the world of work. Participating in career exploration activities to define their employment goals, the participants were motivated and encouraged to take the steps required to achieving their aspirations.

Identified by VPG as suitable candidates for a traineeship opportunity at Centacare FNQ, the participants were encouraged to apply. Strengthening their application prospects, the participants received support to tailor their resume and cover letter and underwent one-on-one interview preparation.

Successfully securing an interview, all three participants were acknowledged by the prospective employer as well-prepared and ideal candidates for the traineeship program, resulting in their employment success.

Through the program, the participants have the opportunity to gain valuable work experience, learn new skills and broaden future employment prospects.

VPG is committed to providing ongoing post-placement support to the participants to ensure a smooth transition into employment and maximise potential to lead successful, independent lives.

Recognising the importance of a driver’s license for future employment opportunities within construction, VPG continues to provide the participants withdriving lessons through the Learner Driver program – an initiative of VPG’s supporting learner drivers with lessons to complete their logbook hours.

All three participants are proud of their achievements and have been acknowledged by their employer as  valued team members who are appreciated for the  work they contribute.
