VTEC’s great program, strong community ties

10 March, 2017

We are so proud of the relationship that Vocational Training and Employment Centres (VTEC) has developed with the Dubbo community.

VTEC is an Australian Government Initiative which offers guaranteed employment positions to Indigenous  jobseekers.

Over the past few months, VTEC have been working with the Dubbo Community Corrections Office to fill a trainee position for an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) Administration Assistant.  

VTEC Case Manager, Anna Rindfleish, struck gold when she was appointed to mentor Sedia Towney-Elemes.

Anna, who had been working with Sedia for a few months before the position was advertised, said she  knew instantly that Sedia would be a suitable fit for the position.

After submitting her application, Sedia was invited to attend an interview and was then offered the Administration Assistant position by Angus Renshaw, Manager of Dubbo Community Corrections Office.

The relationship between VTEC and Dubbo Community Corrections Office is very strong and will only continue to grow and we can’t wait to see what doors will be opened for our clients in the future.
