Brendon is licensed to succeed!

When it comes to employment, having your driver licence can open up a world of opportunities. Well, with a bit of support from Mai-Wel, Brendon has gained not only his P’s licence, but has also gained his Forklift licence!

Brendon joined Mai-Wel through our Workforce Australia – Transition to Work program, to help overcome his barriers in the search for employment. He undertook training, including a Certificate III in Business Administration, got help to update his resume, write cover letters, learn interview techniques and support with all the struggles of searching for the right job.

Gaining a licence was on of Brendon’s goals, knowing being able to drive to and from work would give him greater freedom of choice when it comes to job opportunities. Mai-Wel collaborated with the PCYC to get Brendon into their Driver Licencing Access Program and the Safer Driver Course. This helped Brendon get up his logbook hours, and when time came to sit the Driver’s Test, he passed on the first go!

At the same time, Brendon gained employment in the Manufacturing Industry as a Warehouse Assistant and needed to gain his Forklift Licence as a requirement of the role.

Brendon’s Youth Support Mentor collaborated with RTO Licences 4 Work to source funded training for Brendon to gain his Forklift Licence within the required 3 months of him starting in his new job.

Now Brendon is able to work in different areas of the Warehouse and is gaining new skills each day. The opportunities are endless – and Brendon has the licenses to prove it!
