Alex Ham joined the Y in 2018 but has worked in early learning for several years. As a Teacher at our North Bendigo Preschool, she says the Y has backed her every step of the way.
At the Y, we understand that life, especially in the past couple of years, has been full of unpredictability and challenges. That’s why we’re committed to accommodating the diverse needs and circumstances of our people.
A supportive and caring work environment can make all the difference in your professional journey. By prioritising the wellbeing of our team, we aim to go beyond just the numbers.
At the Y, we acknowledge the juggling act of life, filled with responsibilities and unexpected surprises. For family-orientated individuals like Ben Leerson, Area Manager at the Y, flexibility means the ability to look after loved ones without compromising his professional responsibilities.
We commit to supporting all our team members in all aspects of their lives. What does this mean? Our flexibility isn’t limited to those in higher positions — it’s a principle that runs through every level of our organisation.
For Emma Mcnamara, starting her career at the Y has been a total game changer. As a trainee at the Y Preschool in Mallacoota, she can study at her own pace while gaining real-life experience on the job.
Being at the Y offers Emma flexibility and support as she carves her own path towards an exciting future. And if she wishes to take her studies further, she can continue beyond a certificate and pursue a diploma, all the while being supported by the Y.
At the Y, your development is really important to us. In partnership with the Department of Education, you’ll enhance your knowledge with the latest in best-practice training programs. And we’ll work with you to ensure you can pursue further study and development opportunities in a way that suits you. For Alex, investment in her learning at the Y is invaluable to her personal and professional growth.
At the Y, it’s not just about a job — it’s about embracing the transformative journey. We want you to realise your dreams while shaping your future with us. We believe flexibility truly paves the way for success.
