Annual Report 2016-17 | Department of Corporate and Information Services 97 OUR PEOPLE TRAINEESHIP PROGRAMS DCIS employs a minimum of 12 trainees each year, across the general, Aboriginal and school-based traineeship schemes. Support and guidance is provided to the trainees by the People and Development unit with regular monitoring, discussions in work units and reporting to the Executive Management Board. Workplace buddying arrangements and networking are encouraged to assist trainees to get the most value from their experience at DCIS. Over the reporting period, 14 trainees were working across the department in the areas of business, finance and information technology: Five successfully completed their traineeships. One resigned to undertake different career path. One due to complete Certificate III in Business Administration in February 2018. One due to complete Certificate IV in Business Administration in February 2018. Four due to complete Certificate III in Accounts Administration or Business Administration in August 2018. Two due to complete Certificate III in Information Technology in February 2019. 92% of the trainees are Aboriginal. Success of our Trainees After successfully completing the Aboriginal Employment Program (AEP) Aaron Millen commenced employment within DCIS ICT Services division in June 2015. Since his commencement, Aaron has continued to develop his career in Information Technology. Building on the success of his AEP, Aaron commenced a two-year traineeship in Information, Digital Media and Technology working in HR Systems. The most positive events in my early careers programs would have to be being placed in two interesting and enjoyable areas to work in. I really couldnt ask for anything more in that regard. In recognition of his performance in completing his two-year traineeship within 12-months Aaron was recently awarded the 2017 Top End NAIDOC Youth of the Year. To me the NAIDOC award is a symbol of my accomplishments. It filled me with great pride to receive such an award. There are many benefits to doing a traineeship with the NTGovernment, but the one that stands out for me would be the opportunities I received. Being able to gain further employment and training in my desired field and simply being able to see the multiple career pathways available in government has been an eye opener. Aarons advice for Aboriginal people considering applying for traineeships is be willing to change within your workplace and dont be shame to ask questions. Trainees Aaron Millen
