Proud Ngarrindjeri man and AFL SportsReady trainee, Marley Knight, has been awarded the 2015 Trade School of the Future – School Based Trainee of the Year at the South Australian Graduation.

The award recognises the most outstanding School-based trainee of 2015 and acknowledges their commitment in studies at school and in the workplace.

‘I had no idea I would receive this honour. It’s definitely a rewarding feeling to be recognised for your achievements,’ said Marley.

Marley completed a Certificate II in Financial Services with the ANZ bank at Murray Bridge while still studying Year 11 and 12.

‘My traineeship experience was rewarding, exciting and opened up a new career pathway for me. Now I’m optimistic about my future and feel confident to achieve my dreams.’

AFL SportsReady trainees are assigned Field Officers to support and guide through every aspect of the program.

Craig Berry, praised Marley’s commitment and perseverance throughout the year.

‘Marley started out as a nervous, shy young man who showed enormous growth throughout his traineeship. He rode-out a few bumps along his journey and impressed his host employer so much that they’ve employed him casually’ explained Craig.

Marley will continue his role at ANZ while studying a Bachelor of Education at Flinders University.
