School plays active role

STAFF and skill shortages are common and ongoing problems for businesses and organisations throughout the central west, however Emerald State High School may have the answer with their School Based Apprenticeship and Trainee Program.

Through this successful program the school can match students with industry needs and also with prospective employees to ensure that young people get on-the-job training as well as completing their secondary schooling.

The school will host a meet and greet night tonight, Wednesday, March 16, at the Maratoon Tavern from 5.30pm to 6.30pm to let local businesses know how the SAT program can work for them.

Emerald High School principal Angela Collins said school-based trainees and apprenticeships now played an important role in the school organisation.

“SAT’s full-time work placement co-ordinator Mrs Karen Bray already this year has 56 trainees and apprentices signed up in a wide range of businesses.
