Conservation Trainees Reap the Rewards
Ten trainees have been working hard to help improve some local Bundaberg areas through the Australian Government’s Skilling for the Bundaberg Workforce - Work Skills 
Conservation Projects and guidance of Peter Maike, IMPACT’s Conservation Skills Supervisor.
Successful completion of an upgrade to the Hummock Boardwalk, environmental rejuvenation and weed control along our foreshores and repairs to infrastructure at nature reserves can all be added to their list of achievements over the last 15 weeks. Pete and the trainees work closely with Bundaberg Regional Council’s Natural Resource Management team to ensure the best outcomes for the region.
Pete said it has been a very successful project so far. “The trainees are fantastic workers and attend each day with a positive attitude. The work we do is really important, but it can be monotonous, and each day they turn up and put on the hard yards, some have even gone on to find employment using their conservation skills to support their new job.”
The traineeship programs provide paid employment opportunities to locals; while at the same time enhancing conservation areas that leave a visible and long-lasting impact in our local community. Through the 22 week paid traineeship participants will gain a nationally recognised qualification for a Certificate I in Conservation and Land Management, which will enhance their education portfolio.
The next recruitment round for another 10 trainees will begin in September, if you’d like to express an interest please contact us on 4153 4233. Eligibility does apply, but anyone over the age of 15 is encouraged to apply. Bundaberg Workforce - Work Skills Conservation Projects is being delivered under the Australian Government’s Skilling Queenslanders for Work programs.

SEE The Change 
Time and time again our Skills for Education & Employment (SEE) trainers are hearing how they are helping to change people's lives for the better.  Through their encouragement many SEE students are reaching goals
and taking positive approaches towards learning  literacy and numeracy. A mother of one participant took the time to write SEE trainer Stephen a message. "Thank you for helping our son become the young man he is becoming. Since joining IMPACT his stress levels have almost gone, he enjoys being there everyday and he has said, 'he finally feels like he belongs'. Thank you for the respect you show, thank you for the time you share, thank you for giving us our son back. He was so unhappy at school and felt alone, now he comes home telling us how much he enjoys his day and how many friends he has made. You are an amazing man. Thank you!
If you'd like to surprise yourself through learning please contact the SEE team at IMPACT on 4153 4233.
