Have you been into the York CRC lately? Have you noticed how warm it is now?
Thanks to the Department of Regional Development (now the Department of Primary Industry and Regional D
evelopment)
who kindly supported our grant application for fixtures and fittings, we were able to replace our evaporative air conditioner
with a reverse cycle ducted system. This has made the building much warmer for both staff and clients and we welcome
the community to our more sustainable CRC!

Trainee - Samantha

Trainee shines bright at Wheatbelt TAFE Awards

Photo credit:  Photographs Angie Roe Photography 2017

Former York Community Resource Centre trainee, Samantha Aurisch-Pike, has taken top honours at the recent Central Regional TAFE’s Trainee of the Year Award for the Wheatbelt region.
Samantha joined the CRC as a trainee in March 2016 to study a Certificate III course in Business Administration.  The course when studied part-time should take up to eighteen months to complete however Samantha’s dedication resulted in her completing the course in only six months, and a nomination for the awards from her Central Regional Tafe lecturer, Sue Byfield.
Traineeships are an economic development activity highly regarded by the York CRC and the WA Community Resource Network as a whole. During the course of the traineeship, trainees receive support and mentoring from Centre Coordinators and other supervising staff in the workplace and learn valuable skills and competencies. Some trainees at the CRC have also been sponsored to join a week long sail on the STS Leeuwin II Sailing Ship to help them build communication, leadership and teamwork skills. Traineeships are offered to successful candidates wishing to study a certificate course in Business or other relevant course that meets the trainee’s future career goals.
With a successful placement into a new position and career in the field of accounting, Samantha may well have much more training ahead of her, however, her future certainly looks bright.
