Greencross Vets recently held their annual graduation in Queensland, bringing together trainees from both the Brisbane and Gold Coast regions to recognise the organisation’s School-Based Trainees who completed a Certificate II in Animal Studies.

MEGT trainee Ebony Sloan was thrilled to be named Trainee of the Year on the night. The award, sponsored by MEGT, acknowledges the dedication and consistently high performance of the winning trainee vet nurse throughout their studies.

Since completing her Certificate II, Ebony has secured part-time work with Greencross and looks forward to pursuing her career as a vet nurse once she finishes school next year.

“My favourite part of the traineeship was having the opportunity to work with qualified staff in the clinic who have all contributed to me becoming a valuable team member.”

In conjunction with MEGT, Greencross Vets employ and sign up approximately 60 new School-Based Trainees across Queensland each year.

The program provides a unique opportunity for young people to kick-start their careers and obtain a nationally recognised qualification.

Students who are interested in a veterinary career can attain a Certificate II in Animal Studies as well as gain hands-on experience in the industry while they are still completing their secondary schooling.

Recruitment for the Greencross Vets School-Based Trainee program begins in May, with successful candidates signed up in September/October, and graduating 12 months later.
