GOLD COAST, Australia (February 25, 2016) — Australasia’s largest Resort and Club Management Company, Classic Holidays, is putting its future in the hands of local high school students.
The Gold Coast-based company, which is responsible for the employment of over 1,000 staff, has commenced a new traineeship program for 2016 called Future Inspiration, appointing students from four different local high schools to participate.
Fourteen Future Inspiration trainees will take part in Head Office and Resort traineeships throughout 2016, providing them with practical skills in areas they are interested in – from reception and pay roll to resort maintenance and activity coordination.
It follows on from a school-based trainee pilot program initiated in 2015 by the employer, and ties in with the highly successful and innovative Work Inspiration program, a national work experience program that Classic Holidays has championed for the past three years.
“The 2015 trainee pilot program gave us some great insight and experience into what worked and what didn’t and we have looked at those areas to enhance the program for 2016 and beyond,” said Classic Holidays’ Chief Commercial Officer, Mark Stephenson.
“This allows us to offer a fantastic opportunity to the students to gain valuable work experience while making a significant contribution to our teams and business needs.”
Students from Benowa, Elanora, Helensvale and Palm Beach Currumbin High School have been appointed to the 2016 Future Inspiration traineeships, along with two past trainee students – including one who has now gained part-time employment at Classic Holidays.
