Busi­ness boost via part­ner­ships

Tweed Daily News - - LIFE -

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.
