Path­way to fu­ture

in­crease the num­ber and type of qual­i­fi­ca­tions it pro­vides as the col­lege grows to skill work­ers in other sec­tors, such as hos­pi­tal­ity and re­tail. Path­ways can be de­vel­oped be­tween cour­ses. Many qual­i­fi­ca­tions pro­vided are recog­nised na­tion­ally.

The cour­ses are at its Mar­leston train­ing fa­cil­ity but can be run ex­ter­nally across the state to meet the needs of stu­dents.

Col­lege re­gional man­ager Philippa Metschukat says it of­fers an ed­u­ca­tion op­por­tu­nity for peo­ple who have ex­pe­ri­enced bar­ri­ers in the past to ac­cess­ing or staying in train­ing and em­ploy­ment. This may in­clude peo­ple with a dis­abil­ity, from dis­ad­van­taged back­grounds or who did not com­plete their school­ing.

‘‘This in­cludes a pro­gram for job seek­ers in aged care and re­tail and a ju­ve­nile jus­tice and ex­of­fend­ers pro­gram in Ade­laide’s north­ern sub­urbs, and lan­guage, lit­er­acy and nu­mer­acy and train­ing and as­sess­ment in Ce­duna,’’ she says.

‘‘Red Cross will be able to of­fer ed­u­ca­tion and train­ing path­ways to their ex­ist­ing clients in pro­grams aimed at vul­ner­a­ble peo­ple, help­ing them de­velop skills and gain em­ploy­ment.’’

She says the col­lege aims to match stu­dents with Red Cross vol­un­teer op­por­tu­ni­ties and pro­grams to help give them prac­ti­cal ex­pe­ri­ence and fur­ther per­sonal de­vel­op­ment. Cour­ses also can be cus­tomised to in­di­vid­ual stu­dent needs and tai­lored or de­vel­oped to a busi­ness’s ac­tiv­i­ties.

Funds raised through fees for cour­ses at the col­lege are used to sup­port the body’s hu­man­i­tar­ian ser­vices.
