Broome Boys Build Work-Ready Skills

The senior boys from Broome Academy in WA have worked hard throughout 2018 to become work-ready.

The academy staff organised for a number of external agencies and providers to visit the academy room and assist the boys with obtaining important documents and cards such as their birth certificates, Tax File Numbers and Medicare Cards.

Representatives from the Department of Transport also attended the academy to assist the boys to prepare for their learner’s permit test.

Academy Director Jack Reagan said the academy used a special board to help the boys keep track of where they were at and what they needed to work on.

“Our Work Ready Documents board is a great way for the boys to keep track of their progress and motivate them to reach for their next milestone,” he said.

“Many of our boys are visual learners so having it up on the board keeps it front of mind and maintains their momentum.”
