At the produce, you will see many young bright faces. These are the faces of our future leaders! Capalaba produce is proud to partner with local schools and registered training organizations to offer school-based traineeships as well as work experience. We offer hands-on, real world, experience to assist bright passionate young people to ensure smooth transitions from school to work life. Our trainees experience quite a diverse work life, with tasks varying in departments such as animal care, customer service, hospitality, and business. Our trainees that complete the program leave school equipped with skills and experience ready to be an independent adult in the post-school world.
Many of our trainees have also stayed on after completion, and you’ll find these smiling faces are filled with so much more knowledge about garden, animals, and coffee than other persons their age and even older! As a person who completed a traineeship myself in my last years of high school, I truly know and believe in the benefits it has offered me in life, and it is because of that, that I feel so strongly in working with our local communities youth to do the same for them.
