Two VTEC clients have gained employment in the construction industry, following training through REDI.E.
Jodi McEwen and Glen Weldon are both from Gulargambone. With transport provided by REDI.E Youth Services Case Manager Pollyanna McEwen, they came to our Dubbo office to complete the Apply for General Construction Induction Card (White Card) course.
After successfully completing the course, they went on to gain employment with NPM Indigenous on the Roads to Home Project in Gulargambone.
Roads to Home is a program designed to provide better access to infrastructure and services for discrete Aboriginal communities across NSW.
It supports the delivery of essential road upgrades and empowers Aboriginal landowners to make decisions about how and if their land is used to provide infrastructure.
Jodi and Glen’s jobs will involve completing driveway installs, footpaths, landscaping and colour bond fencing.
Jodi is also the Road Traffic Controller and Glen operates light machinery for the project.
REDI.E is incredibly proud of Jodi and Glen. They are both great examples of the opportunities available through the VTEC program.
This initiative is funded/supported by the Australian Government.
