Hos­pi­tal­ity grad­u­ates get set for work

Central Telegraph - - NEWS - — Glen Por­te­ous

THE Get Set For Work course has pro­vided a great op­por­tu­nity for four Biloela young peo­ple to take part in a fully funded pro­gram and com­plete a na­tion­ally recog­nised cer­tifi­cate.

The course was held at PCYC Biloela and run by PCYC Glad­stone as part of its out­reach pro­gram.

Zion McKen­zie was one of the four who com­pleted the Cer­tifi­cate III in Hos­pi­tal­ity and will use it to help travel not just around Aus­tralia but even­tu­ally the world.

“I fin­ished high school last year and been work­ing as a kitchen hand at Rise Bake­house Cafe and gained more ex­pe­ri­ence with my em­ploy­ment,” Zion said.

“Even­tu­ally I want to travel around the coun­try and then over­seas and this course will help me work at a va­ri­ety of places.”

PCYC Glad­stone com­mu­nity devel­op­ment of­fi­cer Monique Van Houwelin­gen was thank­ful for the fund­ing by the Queens­land Gov­ern­ment through the Skilling Queens­lan­ders for Work Ini­tia­tive.

“The sup­port we re­ceived to run these pro­grams have had re­ally good out­comes and helped these four grad­u­ates find em­ploy­ment,” Monique said.
