Workforce Development Team’s Skills – Delivering Life-Skills Training to Palm Islanders.

Workforce Development Team’s Skills – Delivering Life-Skills Training to Palm Islanders.

Hutchies Workforce Development Team recently took its Personal Development Program on the road for the first time, delivering its life-skills program to a group of Palm Island youths.

The training was part of a broader program being delivered in partnership with the Townsville team and its civil contractor for the Rodeo Grounds subdivision on Palm Island – Mendi Construction.

The participants included three civil trainees employed on the job and four Year 12 students from Bwgcolman Community School who have achieved 99-100% attendance at school this year to
date.

To compliment the program the group, including the Civil Trainee’s parents, toured a facility that provides
accommodation and support for Indigenous youths while they complete their training, as an option should they choose to leave their community.

Also as a reward for their hard work to date, the group were guests of Mendi’s for the Cowboys vs Storm game in Townsville, helping cheer the Cowboys home for their first win of the season.
