Council offers work experience to students and unemployed

THE Fraser Coast Regional Council is giving unemployed people and students an opportunity to gain experience by taking part in a new job placement program.

Up to 60 people each year will be offered a spot in the training initiative, which education and training portfolio councillor Robert Garland said would allow people to undertake work experience in a range of areas.

"Council has had work experience before but they were mostly ad hoc and reactive," Cr Garland said.

"Work experience is not new.

"This program lays out the objectives clearly for all stakeholders to see and engage with.

"It will also increase community awareness of local government career opportunities and what qualifications people need to start a career in local government."

Cr Garland said council believed that the first participants will be inducted under the Get Fraser Coast Working Scheme early next year.
