Bright futures ahead for WDRC employees
THE Western Downs Regional Council is kick-starting careers with their renewed Career Development Program, offering opportunities for 20 new employees and professional development to its current trainees.
Council said its ongoing commitment to provide younger generations with career development and employment opportunities was handed down in the 2017/18 Budget with a focus on investing in future generations across the region.
The program aims to equip future school leavers and future generations with job-ready skills and qualifications.
A bright future is also ahead for WDRC trainees and apprentices, with the council’s new Business Industry Placement initiative helping to diversify skills and experience, exposing them to further local employment opportunities.
The Council’s Career Development Program is a finalist in the 2017 Queensland Training Awards for the Darling Downs South West Region.
