Students Celebrate Graduation Success
The corridors of IMPACT Community Services were abuzz with excitement on March 1st, as students graduated from Certificate III in Individual Support (Disability) and Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing). 

These students had studied diligently for 18 weeks including completing a Vocational Placement in industry of at least 120 hours. Trainers, Wayne Morden and Sandy Baker, were thrilled to see the students so overjoyed and proud of their achievements.

Of the total of 28 graduates, 23 have already commenced work. Sandy said “It is so rewarding to see the change in these students from Day 1 where they are often nervous and anxious, to Graduation where they are confident and ready to commence an exciting new chapter in their lives. As trainers, our reward is witnessing the students’ development.”

IMPACT Community Services will commence courses in the near future:

Certificate III in Individual Support (Disability) 15 MAY 2018
Certificate III in Individual Support (Home and Community) 28 MAY 2018
