Region 52 – Western Tablelands – Jobfind
Certificate II in Sport & Recreation
The Cert II in Sport & Recreation, which started in September, had 12 participants with a 100% attendance rate. The participants learned skills vital to working in the Sport & Recreation Industry.
A unique feature of this course was the introduction of three sessions on nutrition delivered by a Sports Nutritionist from Cairns. Participants graduated in Dec 2013.
Based on feedback from the community, Jobfind know there is a demand for a gym in Kuranda.
This is an opportunity for course participants to start their own micro-enterprise – a local gym. With the right support from the Council and local community, the gym is aiming to be operational by June 2014.
Jobfind is encouraging them to commence a Certificate II in Business and (as part of CAP) is actively introducing them to Indigenous groups.
