This is Matthew Jupp a current School Based Trainee at Yea High School. His Principal Bruce has told us about Matt and his experience with the training.
Matt took a keen interest in the work of our computer technicians throughout 2016. During the latter part of the year, after the discussions and pathway planning with Matt, the school decided to provide Matt with a SBAT program with Integrity Business College providing Cert III in Information, Digital Media and Technology.
The support provided by Integrity Business College for Matt with this program has been significant. The course is delivered on-line allowing Matt to stay at school and complete his Cert III and do his practical training. Alternative training programs out of school are difficult to access because of our location and limited transport options.
Matt’s mid-term report states that ‘He is always very polite and willing to assist in any way possible. He is always on time and will call if he is unable to attend. He has fitted in well with the other team members at the school (pictured above with his supervisor Michael Gipson). Matthew will ask questions when unsure of what he needs to do and is always willing to listen and take instructions.’
Our only issue has been to help manage Matt’s time. As his skills have grown so has the demand for his help and expertise around school.
As you can see, having the option of our virtual platform is a great opportunity for the Trainees who are living in the Country and travelling to class is not an option.
