A graduate from Renewal SA’s Works Program, who is now working at Bowden, has been recognised for excellence by the Civil Contractors Federation of South Australia (CCF SA) held at Adelaide Oval last Friday.
Named Indigenous Trainee of the Year, Darren Wanganeen completed the Port Adelaide Railway Station Live Training Site with Carey Training and was later put forward as a work experience candidate to T&J Constructions at The Square at Woodville West.
As a result, Darren was offered employment and is now working on one of Bowden’s civil construction projects.
Darren is among seven Works Program graduates who were finalists and one of two who were winners in Friday’s CCF SA awards. All seven impressed their supervisors with a positive attitude, commitment to the program and willingness to learn.
Darren was also nominated for two other CCF SA awards — Best Training to Employment Outcome, and Certificate II in Civil Construction Trainee of the Year.
