Over the past 12 to 18 months Solid Futures trainees have worked full time in public sector agencies as they completed the nationally recognised Certificate III in Government.

Whadjuk traditional owner Matthew McGuire presented the Welcome to Country, reminding the graduates to embrace their connection to the land. 

Tracey Ninyette, Executive Director Aboriginal Engagement at the Department of the Premier and Cabinet also spoke, encouraging them to be courageous in their careers. 

Lindsay Warner was joined by Jane Mahon from Aspire Performance Training to present the trainees with their certificates. 

“Whatever you have learned from us on your traineeships, don’t underestimate what we have learned from you,” Lindsay said to the graduates.

The hard work and commitment of the trainees is now paying off with most being offered ongoing employment in their agencies.

Our Solid Futures Aboriginal traineeship program gives Aboriginal people formal training, paid employment and support to complete the Certificate III while helping agencies build diverse, talented and inclusive workforces.

Congratulations to the graduates of 2023 and good luck as you continue to build your career on solid foundations.
