On Friday 3 March, I had the pleasure of visiting Jack Wright at BHP Billiton. Jack is completing his Certificate III Business through a Traineeship.

Jack was successful in completing his Certificate II Business in 2016, the first student in ten years who achieved it within one year at BHP through the traineeship program.

Traineeships allow students to attend the workplace one day a week in order to complete their certificate course within the workplace with hands on training and mentoring. Not only do students attain real workplace experience, but they also receive a part time employee wage from the workplace.

Jack hopes to complete his Certificate III before the end of this year and continue with a Training WA or University pathway towards a career in Engineering and hopes he can also remain at BHP.

Well done, Jack! Mercy College are super proud of you and you are a wonderful ambassador for the College and the Traineeship program.
