Winner: Ashlee Gilder, Certificate III in Individual Support

Employer: Top End Health Services

Knowing she wants to become a midwife in the future, Ashlee Gilder, is putting all the steps in place now to makes sure she achieves her goal.

Ashlee is currently undertaking a Certificate III in Individual Support and was offered one of the first traineeships at the Palmerston Regional Hospital as a Personal Care Assistant.

“I have been proud to tell my friends that I am one of the three girls to gain the first traineeship within the Palmerston Regional Hospital completing a Certificate III in Individual Support alongside completing year 12 studies,” Ashlee said.

“I find great pleasure in being able to work in a diverse workplace environment where my role sees me assisting patients of differing needs on a daily basis. In the future I hope to become a midwife and assist patients with their maternity requirements and journey.”

Since beginning her traineeship, Ashlee has developed her communication and organisational skills, further accelerating her towards her dream of becoming a midwife.
