In one of the most ambitious youth employment campaigns ever undertaken on the Gold Coast, SAS Group client BUSY At Work has set itself a target of placing 101 Gold Coast Year 12 school leavers and youth into apprenticeships and traineeships in six weeks.
The GC101 Apprenticeship campaign was launched today by Federal Assistant Minister for Vocational Education and Skills and Federal Member for McPherson, the Hon Karen Andrews MP.
BUSY At Work CEO Paul Miles said it was important that the group does everything it can to support young people, including this year's year 12 school leavers.
“Our commitment to supporting positive social change and providing support to local communities on the Gold Coast is at the heart of all we do," Mr Miles said.
"Today we are calling on employers on the Gold Coast who are willing to give a young person the opportunity of a lifetime to contact us at BUSY to help us reach our target,” he said.
