Rabecca Finds Her Dream Job
South Sudanese migrant and Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP) student Rabecca Atem has the world at her feet after securing work in her chosen field of child care with the help of STEPS.
Rabecca began studying English in September last year, and after finding her dream job at a Darwin crèche recently, she continues her English studies at the night classes provided by STEPS Education & Training Casuarina.
Having worked in a children’s home in Kenya, Rabecca is a passionate and caring person with the ability to connect with children of all ages.
“I love the childcare industry and I love helping children develop their social, intellectual and motor skills,” Rabecca said.
Creche manager Vena Nyandoro said Rabecca is a real asset to their team.
“It feels like she’s been here forever, she fits right in and always arrives first to work and gets everything organised,” Vena said.
STEPS Education & Training staff supported Rabecca through her employment journey by assisting her to apply for her Ochre card (working with children clearance card) and by referring her to employment opportunities in the local area.
The Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP) is funded by the Australian Government Department of Education.
