There’s more than one way to gain a full education and a qualification for your future. Ashleigh White, now aged 16, found the traineeships pathway suited her yearning for independence.

Chris Greentree, one of the Wagga Wagga Consultants for MEGT Australian Apprenticeships Centre has been helping Ashleigh on her journey towards achieving her Certificate II Retail qualification with Camera House in Baylis Street.

After helping Camera House and Ashleigh with the Training Contract and processes to start the traineeship, I’ve been monitoring how Ashleigh has been going, explains Ms Greentree. The traineeship has meant Ashleigh is able to earn an income at the same time she is learning the retail trade on the job.

‘She’s done Year 10 through Riverina Institute of TAFE and the progression to workplace learning suits her free spirit’ according to Ms Greentree.

Australian Apprenticeships are an Australian government initiative.
