Seventeen-year-old North Coast youth Mikala Wade-Ferrell left school halfway through Year 11 so that she could start working full-time to support herself living out of home.
“I was losing interest in school but I found the TtW program helped me to move into work. It was quite scary to look for work on my own but Rosie at ETC has been a huge help. She helped me with my resume and interviews – now I have a full-time Retail Traineeship.”
Mid North Coast youth Taylor Davis just completed her first ever qualification – Certificate III in Business.
“I thought the course was going to be hard at first, but with all the support I got from ETC, I actually found it pretty easy. I would definitely recommend other young people to come and see them. It’s a lot of fun coming to ETC and they treat you as your age.”
