Simon’s apprenticeship

Simon's Story

simon's apprenticeship at cpx printing & logistics

Up until January 2018, Simon had been experiencing homelessness and shared with us that he had been ‘couch surfing’ at different friends places. With all the mounting pressure of his situation, he had felt quite disheartened with his prospects at being able to work.

This was up until he registered with our Help Employment & Training team in Caboolture to receive Disability Employment Services.

Simon was introduced to CPX Printing & Logistics at the beginning of 2018 and something miraculous happened. James, the Director of CPX, saw potential in Simon even without him having any prior experience in the print design industry. Simon was given the opportunity for a work trial and the rest is history!

Now hitting the half-year mark of his mature age printing apprenticeship with CPX, Simon is absolutely loving his job and place in life. He’s also been able to secure stable shared accommodation.

Simon tells us that he’s gained back his self-confidence and dignity, with special thanks to James at CPX for giving him a second chance at life to prove himself.
