Cadet induction

On 3 December 2018 ELTP welcomed over 30 new Cadets to Entry Level Talent Programs. The Cadet program aims to provide university students with the opportunity to gain practical work experience that aligns with their studies. Cadets work a minimum of 14 hours per week while studying full time and 35 hours (full time) outside of semester times.

To help the new Cadets understand the culture of TfNSW, ELTP runs a one week orientation event to explain the core values of Transport and provide the Cadets with an opportunity to get to know one another before heading out to the cluster. Establishing a professional network early on allows Cadets to ask their cohort questions about their different projects and departments as they progress through the program.

Jenny Gu who is a fourth year student at the University of New South Wales studying Commerce and Arts was at the Cadet orientation week saying, “Being part of the team building activities was a stand out for me, highlighting the importance of clear and simple communication in the work force.”

For Urvi Prajapati, a fourth year Engineering and Business student, completing a personality test was the highlight saying, “The test gave me an insight into the different personality types in the room and how we all approach challenges and decision making differently. I’m going to remember this as I head into the workforce; different perspectives help us create better solutions.”

ELTP wishes all of the new Cadets the best of luck as they launch their careers with Transport for NSW.
