Centacare’s First Disability Course a Fantastic Success for Students
Centacare would like to offer congratulations to the students who achieved their Certificate III in Individual Support (Disability) last week!
These students are the first to attain this qualification with Centacare, attending a graduation event on 4th August to celebrate their fantastic achievement.
There are extensive job opportunities for qualified and skilled staff to provide individual support to those with a disability, especially with the roll-out of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), which will reportedly require 300,000-plus new full- and part-time jobs by 2020.
All the students in the class completed three weeks work experience with disability services provider, Identitywa, in order to prepare them for the workforce. We received excellent overall feedback on our students from Identitywa, who even published a story on their website about one of our students, James.
The students were excited to achieve their qualification and expressed gratitude at having been given the opportunity to study at Centacare.
“I’m very grateful for the opportunities that you have given me,” said Mia, one of the successful students.
“It has been a very fun few months. Everyone is so friendly and I really enjoyed my time here so thank you for that,” she said.
Simon, another successful graduate, said he was grateful to Centacare for organising the work placement on behalf of the students.
“Some other training providers find it hard to find where to put you for your work placement,” he said, “Centacare has been able to organise that, which has been very much appreciated.”
We wish all of our students all the best for the future and good luck with securing work in the industry; we are sure you will all be very successful and have a positive influence on the lives of the people you work with!
