A trend for the better
YOUNG Indigenous graduates have bucked the youth unemployment trend with the help of WA’s largest transport and logistics company.
Trainees Taylor Kickett, Louise Smith, Tre Griffiths and Bradley Moore recently graduated at Centurion as part of its Frank Cardaci Traineeship.
Centurion is part of the eastern Perth suburbs – the third highest in the state for youth unemployment, according to a recent report based on ABS data.
Mundaring, Guildford and Ellenbrook were listed in the third-highest group with 15 per cent youth unemployment, ahead of Northam.
Centurion chief executive Justin Cardaci said the trainee program provided an opportunity for young people to change their circumstances and their lives for the better.
“The Frank Cardaci Traineeship is unique because it offers young people an environment where they can learn and grow both inside and outside of the workplace,” he said.
Indigenous affairs manager Justin Kickett said the program owed its success to the support from mentors.
Graduates and officials celebrate yet another successful Frank Cardaci Traineeship program.
