Cooper Williams Traineeship graduation.jpg

Congratulations to Cooper Williams who recently graduated from a Certificate II Health and Support at The Princess Alexandra Hospital.​ Cooper attended one day per week over a 12 month period, working and training at the PA hospital in all areas of Health Support Services. The hospital runs this program to a group of year 11 students to carry them through until year 12. Students are then encouraged to apply for available positions within the hospital at the end of year intake, with a better opportunity for acceptance from their training. Cooper hopes to continue study in health after year 12 and pursue pathways to Nursing.

'It was a great experience, I enjoyed learning about the hospital and helping the patients. These opportunities aren't always available to other people, so it was great to experience it.'

-​​Cooper Williams
