"Through my 12-month traineeship with Apprenticeship Careers Australia, I gained experience working alongside support workers and in meeting the diverse needs of people with disabilities. The practical training and mentoring from the support workers, along with the formal study component and encouragement from my trainers, has enabled me to be a confident and capable employee with a good knowledge of the sector."
