September/October Programs update with Maria Leonardi
We would like to welcome Tracey Fishman to our team as the Student Mentor for enVizion students.
A note from Tracy:
My Name is Tracey Fishman and I am the recently appointed Mentor at enVizion. My job involves providing holistic support to assist in creating an environment in which students are comfortable to grow and overcome challenges to reach for their goals and dreams. I liaise with trainers and employers; and meet with students in class and weekly one on one to provide support tailored to each individual’s needs.
My favourite part of the job is providing hope. Seeing someone stand taller and smiling confidently from within will always be amazing to me. The positive energy this creates on others has a more powerful impact than any words I could say and often plants the seed of hope in someone else. When that happens, I am part of the team that supports that seed to see it thrive. “
The training department has been very busy this month. Having started our current “Skilling Queenslanders for Work” programs and we had completed our first week of work preparation non-accredited training and all the students are looking smart and professional in their supplied uniforms. We are now up to Week 5 in the Foundation Skills and in the next couple of weeks will start the Certificate II in Hospitality & Certificate III in Community Services which start on the 15th October 2018.
We welcome back Rosita Haijema, who is doing some work for us in running a class of students learning how to be a Barista.
I am also making new contacts with Host Employers who are very eager to join our programs in offering enVizion students work placements with possible job outcomes at the end of this program.
Our next Certificate II in Hospitality and Certificate III in Community Services start on the 15th October 2018, we still have some seats available however they are filling up fast so please be quick to enrol.
On Tuesday 25th September, enVizion and DATSIP held a NDIS workshop for people wanting to start their own business in the NDIS space. We had a lot of questions and people joining up to our program to help them get started with their business ideas and registering as a provider.
