Meet Jasmine Winmar, a young Indigenous woman from Western Australia, building her future through work and study.

Jasmine completed her Certificate ll Business traineeship in 2017 as a School Based Trainee. She impressed the team at Western Australian Country Health (WACHS) so much they offered her a full time traineeship studying a Certificate lll in Business.

Jasmine now works both at the head office of WACHS in Bunbury. With her supervisors in Manjimup, she’s assisting transition WACHS services to the new Manjimup Hospital.

Through the Australian Government’s Jobs, Land and Economy Programme (JLEP) Jasmine receives regular support and mentoring from ATC Work Smart. She also receives continual training from WACHS who are a proactive host employer assisting with the employment and training of Indigenous workers.

Jasmine has a positive approach to her training and is doing very well with her Certificate lll studies.

A spokesperson for WACHS said they are very proud of her achievements and the commitment she shows to the work environment. She has fitted in well with the team at WA Country Health.

Jasmine’s hard work and commitment to the training program has given her a solid base for future employment opportunities.

The Australian Government’s Jobs, Land and Economy Programme (JLEP) is helping to change the lives of many Indigenous Australians.

Funding through JLEP enables training organisations like ATC Work Smart to provide opportunities for Indigenous Australians to achieve long term, sustainable employment.

The Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet funds Group Training Australia which in turn engages ATC Work Smart to manage Jasmine’s career progression by providing training and mentoring support.
