Building Community Leaders Of The Future

Skillinvest together with Victoria Police are helping to nurture and develop positive community leaders of the future, providing local employment and training opportunities at Police stations throughout Victoria for year 10, 11 and 12 Aboriginal students through a School-based Traineeship.

Meet two of the students undertaking this exciting new traineeship in the video below - Kyal Atkinson from Echuca and Tanya Morrison from Horsham, both in year 11.

Funded by Jobs Victoria Employment Network (Jobs Victoria), the traineeship will see students performing office and clerical duties and complete a Certificate III in Business Administration. The traineeships are up to 24-months in duration and participating students will undertake a combination of on and off the job training and studies, with the long-term view of entering the police force.

Participating Victorian police stations include; Ararat, Ballarat, Benalla, Bendigo, Broadmeadows, Castlemaine, Dandenong, Echuca, Geelong, Hamilton, Horsham, Mildura, Mill Park, Moe, Morewell, Mordialloc, Narre Warren, Pakenham, Portland, Reservoir, Sale, Shepparton, Sunshine, Swan Hill, Warnambool and West Ballarat.
