Trainee of the Year

Winner: Jack Short, Certificate III in Information, Digital Media and Technology

Training provider: Red Centre Technology Partners

For lifelong local Jack Short, busy took on a whole new meaning when he decided to enrol in a school-based traineeship while completing year 12 and working two days a week.

Things haven’t slowed down since he completed his schooling, with Jack deciding to take on a Certificate III traineeship in Information, Digital Media and Technology to further develop his skills in the IT industry. “I have learnt many skills throughout my traineeship which include time management, organisation skills, formal emailing and taking on a professional attitude and image for the workplace,” Jack said.

Jack credits the support of GTNT in helping him manage his busy schedule, checking in and keeping him motivated.

Jack, who was born in Alice Springs and raised on his family’s cattle stations, hopes to complete a Certificate IV in Information Technology and further develop his skills in the industry.

Runner up: Jordan Owen
