SEALINK SUPPORTS COWBOYS LEARN EARN LEGEND!
The Toyota Cowboys' innovative Learn Earn Legend! Program is giving Indigenous students like Rosina Anau the chance to move straight into the workforce once they finish their schooling.
It is with the participation of companies like Townsville-based ferry company Sealink coming on board as a Cowboys Learn Earn Legend! employment partner that the gap is being closed between Indigenous and non-Indigenous employment levels.
Rosina, who hails from Boigu Island in the Torres Strait, is a boarding student at Shalom College in Townsville and one of almost 300 Indigenous students who have signed up to the program.
She is in Year 12 and is looking for a career/traineeship in a customer service related role.
Sealink has offered the Cowboys Learn Earn Legend! Program valuable work experience placements for participants who have expressed an interest in any of the many vocations the company has on offer.
Sealink may also have school-based and full-time traineeships for Indigenous students available as part of the program in the near future.
