Directions is very proud of Desmond Braun who recently earned himself a plumbing apprenticeship, hosted by Blackwell Plumbing in Northam.
Desmond has been mentored by our Aboriginal Training and Employment Coordinator Brenda DeAtta through his transition from school into employment. He came to her attention while delivering workshops at Clontarf Academy in Northam in 2015.
Since successfully completing his Year 12, Brenda has been working with Desmond to equip him with job-ready skills and helping him prepare for the workforce. Desmond was assisted with updating his resume, writing covering letters, and applying for jobs. He also attended one of Directions’ popular Workforce Development Centre workshops for Interview Skills, gaining the knowledge and skills to prepare and present himself at a job interview.
