Certificate IV in Business
Madeline Wade has completed Certificates III and IV in Business while working at the Port Arthur Historic Site Management Authority (PAHSMA) in Tasmania.
She chose a traineeship to ultimately assist with her goal of becoming a nurse and working in a management position. However, she also has a deep interest in the history of the historic site in Port Arthur.
While at first glance it might appear that a traineeship at a world heritage listed organisation is rather an indirect route to a nursing career, Madeline feels it will help her in her future role.
Madeline has held a variety of positions at the PAHSMA, exposing her to working with a diverse range of people which she will also experience when she becomes a nurse.
During her traineeship Madeline was invited to speak at the Year 10 Work Inspirations Program to advise students about her on-the-job work experience as well as the formal training.
