Bright fu­tures ahead for WDRC em­ploy­ees

Chinchilla News - - NEWS -

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.
