Apprentices and Trainees Queensland and Brisbane Broncos Game Development Partnership
"Job Pathways Sessions 2023-2024"
We are pleased to announce that Apprentices and Trainees Queensland is teaming up with Casey McGuire and The Broncos Game Development Program to present the "Jobs Pathways Sessions" for 2023 and 2024.
Apprentices and Trainees Queensland is set to visit schools, delivering informative presentations to students. These sessions will provide valuable insights into preparing for and applying for Apprenticeships and Traineeships while shedding light on prominent career prospects within our local area.
Aimed at Year 9 and 10 students, these sessions cover crucial aspects such as the pathways leading to Apprenticeships and Traineeships, an overview of available career opportunities within our locality, and advice on subject choices for senior education to align with desired vocational paths. Furthermore, the presentations furnish insights into the various apprenticeship and traineeship categories offered, along with our annual collaborative intakes with regional industries. Students are also guided on advantageous short courses and certifications attainable during their school years to bolster their application prospects.
For Year 11 and 12 students, our presentations delve deeper into practical application procedures for our Apprenticeships and Traineeships. Attendees gain insights into the diverse opportunities accessible and our annual collaborative industry-driven intakes. Additionally, we offer strategies to craft compelling applications, including an outline of our recruitment process, aptitude testing details, and valuable etiquette for successful interviews. Through these engaging presentations, we empower students with the knowledge and tools needed to navigate their journey towards a successful apprenticeship or traineeship experience.
Apprentices and Trainees Queensland CEO Michael Walz is excited about this partnership, stating, “This collaboration embodies our mission to equip the youth of Queensland with the tools and knowledge they need to succeed in their chosen careers. By joining forces with The Broncos Game Development Program, we’re passing the ball of opportunity to the next generation. Together we’ll inspire and guide students to seize the vast opportunities that apprenticeships and traineeships offer in our region.”
Angie Wilmot. Operations Manager at Apprentices and Trainees Queensland, added, “The ‘Jobs Pathway Sessions’ are more than just an informational program; they are the training grounds for the future stars of our local workforce. Much like in rugby league, where coaches and players work together to refine skills and strategies the ‘Jobs Pathway Session’ coach our youth in career development. Together, we're not only setting up plays for immediate success but building a winning team for the future of Central Queensland”
Casey McQuire – Brisbane Broncos Game Developer has stated The Brisbane Broncos strongly believe that sports and sporting organisations can significantly and positively impact young people's lives by driving programs that build better communities, not just better athletes. Rugby League has emerged as a powerful tool in the delivery of these initiatives for young people, with some very positive statistics over the last 20 years. The Brisbane Broncos Football Club are dedicated to using their company as a vehicle to provide support and improve outcomes for youth in local communities.
Focus is on health as your number one asset, mental wellbeing, staying active and benefits of playing in a team sport. The ATQLD Job Pathways Sessions are a great value add to our school visits.
ATQLD has facilitated the transition of thousands of Central QLD students out of school and into the workforce for 37 years, and the Brisbane Broncos are excited to work beside an organisation with a strong reputation in the local Gladstone, Rockhampton, Mackay, Emerald and Biloela regions.
