GLADSTONE indigenous students are on the road to success, graduating on Friday from a 20-week training program.

The GLNG Keys to Careers program in partnership with Energy Skills Queensland armed nine local participants with employable skills.

Energy Skills Queensland project manager Karen Bellert said the initiative was designed to help graduates on the next step of their journey towards long-term employment.

"To make a difference to someone's life is the most rewarding feeling you can have in life," she said.

"We wish all graduates all the very best as the next step of their journey begins."

The nine graduates gathered at Spinnaker Park on Friday for a celebration ceremony attended by Deputy Mayor Mark Burnett and GLNG plant manager Brenton Hawkin.

Mr Hawkin wished each individual prosperity for the future.

"For the future I would say get out there, keep learning and believe you can achieve," he said. "Your journey has just begun."

Over the period of the training course, participants engaged in life skills training, job-readiness training, accredited training, driving training and a work placement program.

Of those who graduated, seven are now employed locally, with two making great progress into gaining permanent employment.

Ms Bellert said she was grateful for the support given to the program by the community.

"A big thank you goes out to all our community partners," she said, "especially Nhulundu Health Services and Gladstone Regional Council."
