Ivanhoe Girls Grammar School
Kate Payne was always unsure what road to take after school. She tossed up between a few occupations but knew wherever her career would lead her it had to be in the sporting or teaching industry.
She hit the jackpot when she discovered AFL SportsReady, there were a number of available teaching jobs at schools right across Victoria. Kate applied for the role at Ivanhoe Girls Grammar School and saw it as an opportunity of a life time with one of the states most respected girls schools.
Her traineeship experience surpassed her expectations, after contributing to the schools large scale projects and taking on tasks that have provided her many benefits for her future plans.
Whilst gaining hands on experience Kate also studied a Certificate III in Sport and Recreation allowing her to develop the essential skills and knowledge she needs to launch into her career.
"I would honestly suggest for everyone to do a traineeship. At first I wasn't sure if I wanted to study or work for a year, but then I heard about AFL SportsReady which combined both work and study!"
"It's an eye opening experience, it has taught me what life in the work place is all about."
