Moss­man teen now cer­ti­fied to teach

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

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.”
