Renmark High School student Johnny Bediavas successfully completed a Certificate III in Microbusiness Operations course and a Certificate III in Business Administration as part of his SACE

Johnny also took General Mathematics, Material Products, Essential English and the Research Project.

The 18-year-old’s skills have not gone unnoticed by Renmark truck service Todiam Freightlines who offered Johnny an office clerk position.

“I have always had an interest in business and enterprise and it was a natural fit for me to follow a business pathway as part of my SACE,” Johnny said.

“I completed the Certificate three in Microbusiness Operations last year and my Pathways Coordinator at Renmark High School suggested I take a Certificate three in Business Administration.

“I have learned so many business administration skills, including using Microsoft Office, taking phone calls and writing messages down.

“I’m so happy to get a job where I can use my business administration skills and learn so many different things. In the future I would love to start my own business, where I find an everyday problem and find a solution to that problem.”

Renmark High School Pathways Coordinator Mrs Marina Pater is delighted with Johnny’s accomplishments.

“We are proud of Johnny's hard work and enthusiasm for the local transport industry,” Mrs Pater said.

“Johnny has been offered a position at Todiam Freightlines in their office where he is putting his VET skills to use. He is keen to continue learning more about the business world and will continue to seek more training at the local TAFE.” 

Christina Babaniotis, HR, WHS & Compliance Coordinator at Todiam Freightlines, said they were excited to have Johnny on board.

“Johnny’s enthusiasm and commitment to his work is very welcoming to see a young man dedicated to excel in his area of work,” Ms Babaniotis said.

“He fits in so well in our office and is a valued member of our team. With the legal and compliance commitment we have internally for the transport industry, this in turn will teach Johnny a whole new world of administration tools, as he has the ability and intelligence to learn and grow.

“We are excited to continue to train and assist Johnny to achieve his goals in the future.”
