Business boost via partnerships
A UNIQUE program on the southern Gold Coast will provide a win-win situation for both business and the community through a collaborative scholarship scheme that could set a benchmark for the entire city.
The community scholarship will be open to applicants looking to develop a career in event management and has come about as a result of consultation between One Step Further Training based in Coolangatta, Connecting Southern Gold Coast (CSGC) and Griffith University.
One Step Further founder and CEO Jo-anne Smith said the scholarship was not only a way of giving back to the community but also benefiting the local area by providing the opportunity to develop an applicant who can assist the growing number of events on the southern Gold Coast.
The retail value of the Diploma program is $15,000. The internship component at Connecting Southern Gold Coast and the entire program will be delivered by One Step Further and will include a combination of flexible learning options, E-learning theory based study, workplace internship program with Connecting Southern Gold Coast and industry based excursions that are project based.
