We are proud to congratulate MEGT trainee Hannah Black who was recently named the Bob Marshman Trainee of the Year at the South-East QLD Regional Training Awards. Hannah will now go on to compete at state level in the QLD Training Awards on 2 September.
After graduating from university without any professional experience, Hannah decided to fill her skills gap by undertaking a BSB30115 Certificate III in Business, which she believed would give her a broad range of skills she could apply in any industry.
Hannah actively pursued a traineeship and was employed by MEGT’s recruitment services team and placed in employment with Host Employer Electrogroup Apprenticeships and Training. At Electrogroup, she gained on-the-job training and experience while completing formal training through MEGT Institute.
Throughout her traineeship with Electrogroup, Hannah’s contribution to the organisation and her professionalism have been recognised and she has been rewarded with higher responsibilities and greater business exposure and experience.
Hannah is thankful for the opportunity MEGT and Electrogroup have given her. She says the traineeship has provided a sound foundation in business, communication, networking, and professionalism skills, and has built her confidence. Hannah also says she has enjoyed her first industry experience and has received not only mentoring and support but made good friends throughout her traineeship.
Hannah is also grateful for the support and assistance MEGT provided throughout her training and has recommended MEGT to a number of her friends who are trying to decide on the next step in their career.
During her traineeship, Hannah achieved many personal and professional goals, and gained skills that will set her up for future employment. Hannah says her previous degree combined with her on-the-job experience throughout her traineeship also prepared her to return to university to undertake post-graduate studies. She is now studying to become a high school biology and junior science teacher and will be able to teach certain levels of business subjects thanks to her traineeship qualification.
We know Hannah will be successful in her post-graduate studies and wish her all the very best of luck for the QLD Training Awards in September!
