Life skills the goal of ac­cred­ited pro­grams

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FEEDBACK -

THE Moss­man Gorge Train­ing Cen­tre is an in­dige­nous eco-tourism busi­ness which pro­vides pre-em­ploy­ment, ac­cred­ited and life skill train­ing pro­grams to pre­pare students for ca­reers in var­i­ous roles.

The mod­ern, well-equipped train­ing cen­tre of­fers na­tion­ally recog­nised qual­i­fi­ca­tions and trainee­ships with the Moss­man Gorge Cen­tre through MEGT Aus­tralia Ltd in hos­pi­tal­ity, re­tail, of­fice ad­min­is­tra­tion, tourism, hor­ti­cul­ture and com­puter op­er­a­tions.

MEGT aims to in­crease op­por­tu­ni­ties for Abo­rig­i­nal and Tor­res Strait Is­lan­ders by pro­vid­ing train­ing and sup­port from ded­i­cated staff to achieve their goals and re­ceive as­sis­tance in gain­ing on­go­ing em­ploy­ment at the com­ple­tion of train­ing.

Sa­man­tha Martin from MEGT said the train­ing has been re­ceived ex­tremely well in Moss­man, Port Dou­glas, Cairns and sur­round­ing com­mu­ni­ties in the Far North.

“This is a great op­por­tu­nity for the Moss­man Gorge community and other in­dige­nous Aus­tralians to be a part of a new busi­ness and de­velop their ed­u­ca­tion and skills into a pos­i­tive and healthy ca­reer path­way,” she said.

“I feel very proud to be a part of this new and ex­cit­ing busi­ness as it has al­ways been my dream to work closely with the in­dige­nous youths in pro­vid­ing a pos­i­tive role model for them in be­com­ing young in­dige­nous lead­ers of to­mor­row - and what a great place to be liv­ing out a dream.”
