The program offers students an opportunity to complete a nationally recognised qualification in their chosen field as a full-time paid employee at Council.
Council's Executive Manager People and Culture, Krystie Bryant said the program aims to develop students to become job ready.
"We are committed to supporting our residents studying at a vocational level with an opportunity to increase their chances of securing employment," Ms Bryant said.
"Our TrApp Program aims to educate students, so they are qualified at a high industry standard by developing their practical and professional skills in a safe and supportive environment.
"Students that complete the program are armed with workplace development and expert training, so they are more competitive in the job market and they are also exposed to career opportunities with Council.
"Local youth and mature age students looking to start a career or want to gain new skills in a range of fields are encouraged to apply for our 2021 program."
Successful applicants must undertake a range of requirements for the duration of the program including working 35 or 38 hours per week, completion of all work, attending all classes, completing all assessments, gain competency in all qualification units and completion of certification and employment service.
Mayor Lisa Matthews said Council's TrApp Program has been a success and continues to provide an exciting opportunity particularly for our young people.
"This important program offers our community an opportunity to build their careers within Local Government and gain valuable training in their chosen path," Mayor Matthews said.
"Council has an important role to play in providing our youth with employment opportunities and supporting our residents with roles to live and work locally.
"I am proud that Council offers opportunities for our community to gain professional experience and become job ready in their chosen career."
