In early 2019, the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) opened a Regional Traineeship Program, a grant opportunity to the CRC network and to 22 Local Governments (who don’t have a CRC within their Shire) to apply for traineeship funding. After a successful first traineeship in local Paige Morris, the CRC applied again in the hope to be successful and again offer this opportunity within our community.
The application included consultation with businesses in the Shire and we thank the business who contributed to our successful application. Made possible thanks to Royalties for Regions funding, the Dumbleyung CRC was one of 45 organisations to have their funding approved.
We welcomed Ella to the team last week in a part time role and hope to assist Ella in completing a Certificate III in Tourism or Certificate IV in Business. Ella has recently moved to Kukerin, so please pop in and meet our new trainee, say hello and make Ella feel a part of the Dumbleyung Community!
