WesCEF creates positive futures through SMYL
Through its partnership with South Metro Youth Link (SMYL) Community Services, a not-for-profit service provider supporting people and communities to make positive changes for their future, Wesfarmers Chemicals, Energy & Fertilisers (WesCEF) is supporting Indigenous youth in the Kwinana/Rockingham area to build future capability and workplace experience through school-based traineeships.
Since 2014 ,three Indigenous senior high school students have participated in school-based traineeships, getting on-the-job experience at WesCEF’s CSBP Kwinana business.
Two students who are completing their Certificate II in Engineering spend one day of the school week at CSBP’s Kwinana manufacturing plant, while another student, who is completing her Certificate II in Business Administration, spends one day of the school week at CSBP’s Kwinana Reception learning valuable on-the-job skills.
WesCEF and SMYL joined forces in 2014 as part of WesCEF’s ongoing commitment to Indigenous engagement, creating development and employment opportunities for Indigenous people, and for the long-term benefit of the Indigenous community.
