Mossman teen now certified to teach
MOSSMAN teenager Chenoa Ryan has recently completed her studies and gained a Certificate III in education.
This achievement now opens up a pathway for the 17-year-old to become a teacher, Remote Area Teaching Education Program (RATEP) teacher co-ordinator Kayleen White said.
Chenoa not only graduated by gaining her Certificate III through the RATEP but she completed two years of study in just 12 months.
“It has been amazing journey for Chenoa and she has been an absolutely wonderful student and really excelled and to do the course in just 12 months is a great result for her and RATEP,” Ms White said.
Chenoa now has the choice to undertake further studies and attend JCU in partnership with TAFE and enrol in the Certificate IV course or work towards getting her diploma in education.
“It would be great if Chenoa did go on to become a teacher because we have three Aboriginal teachers already and if she joined the ranks it really would be wonderful,” Ms White said.
“But she is only 17 and she could change her mind and do something totally different.
“Whatever she chooses to do I am sure she will make a success of it because she is a bright young woman and works hard toward her goals.”
