Youth vie for traineeship

FORTY young people attended an information session on forest growing and management, following keen response to an Aboriginal traineeship position advertised by Forests NSW.

“This is a departure from the usual Forests NSW recruitment practice, but the response has certainly been impressive,” Forests NSW training coordinator Sue McGilvray said.

The successful candidates will undertake a two-year TAFE Certificate III in forest growing and management, will be employed by Aboriginal Employment Strategy and funded by Forests NSW.
