Holly O., Mornington VIC, 17 years of age

“I have been employed by ATEP since 2010 and am completing a Tourism and Guiding school based traineeship as part of my VCE school studies. Before finishing my first 12 months I had successfully completed a Certificate II nationally recognized qualification and am now well on my way to completing the Certificate III level in line with my Year 12 school year. The part time job opportunity was exactly what I was looking for and I now have part-time work with two of the businesses next year and a real understanding of what the tourism industry could offer me towards a further career path when I complete my schooling in late 2011.
