Students from Hedland Senior High School (HSHS) are participating in a two-year School-based Traineeship program (SBT), which is a collaboration between Qube, Programmed, Hedland Clontarf Academy and HSHS, following last year's inaugural Port Hedland Career expo.
Four students, according to Qube, have now been provided with the opportunity to work once a week at the Qube Transport Depot. The students will learn the numerous tasks involved in the service and maintenance of the Qube Pilbara transport fleet.
“We are proud to join with Qube in facilitating this great opportunity for the local students from the Hedland Senior High School and the Clontarf Academy," said Programmed Area Manager, Steve Esmonde.
“Our partnership with Qube will allow many opportunities for our boys to go on and gain an apprenticeship with Qube in the near future," said Clint Ernst from the Hedland Clontarf Academy," he said. "We look forward to working together and seeing the partnership grow."
Programmed is a provider of operations and maintenance services across various industry sectors.
The Clontarf Foundation aims to improve the education, discipline, life skills, self-esteem and employment prospects of young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men.
