Ashlee is 18 years old with a passion and interest for a career in childcare but was finding it difficult to get an opportunity for paid employment.
Ashlee was informed about the new PaTH program and was happy to participate as she realised that if she did well in the Internship, it would be likely she would gain the job and commence paid employment.
Olympus Solutions contacted Jenny's Kindy Gosford highlighting Ashlee's friendly personality and her strong desire to work in childcare and the employer was very pleased to offer Ashlee the Internship.
Ashlee needed support with the job application, interview skills, clothing for the interview and work. She has also been supported by Olympus Solutions Post Placement support team and mentors.
Corey from Jenny's Kindy Gosford, was very happy to participate in the Internship program as it gave her the ability to trial a candidate who they felt at the interview could suit the role and their business with the added bonus of being able to train Ashlee to meet the requirements of the role.
Corey also commented that the incentive payment of $1000 gives the employer ample time to trial a candidate thoroughly and also assists with the cost of training and supervising Ashlee.
Ashlee is now in her third week of the Internship and Jenny's Kindy Gosford is already giving great feedback not only about Ashlee’s work performance but also about the smooth process from listing the vacancy with Olympus Solutions through to interview and then Internship, which will all hopefully transpire into a placement for Ashlee in a career she is passionate about.
