Successful preparation leads to a positive experience.
Our Charged Up for Work program begins with one day per week of tailored work preparation training for students over seven weeks. Students learn practical employment skills that will support them in the workplace. Upon completing the training, graduates will receive up to 12 months of individualised support to pursue their chosen careers.
In Term 1 this year, Garrison completed the work preparation training. Working with his Charged Up for Work Consultant Luke, they identified Garrison’s interest in sport and fitness. Luke then searched for an opportunity that would fulfil this brief and somewhere he could build on his skills. This opportunity came in the form of work experience at Snap Fitness Banksia Grove. The team at Snap Fitness have provided a wonderfully supportive environment for Garrison. Our team believes in matching students to supportive employers, giving each person the best initial workplace experience possible.
Snap Fitness Banksia Grove’s Club Manager Makenzie has found Garrison to be a great addition to the team. “Garrison has been a delight to have in the club, he is so eager to work, train and be part of the culture here at Snap Fitness. Even in the short time he has been here, it has been great to see Garrison’s confidence and independence grow.”
Mackenzie has been pleased with the ease of working with Garrison and his Charged Up for Work Consultant, “Luke has made the whole experience so easy going, by being transparent and providing support where needed. The Charged Up for Work program is a wonderful opportunity to provide these kids with the skills they need to get out and gain meaningful employment after school.”
