Downes Group helps prepare Youth for Training
30th March 2016
Steve and Tony together with Natalie have developed a practical programed site visit for youth about to undertake the Certificate I in construction. The first site visit was received well and provided an opportunity to show on ground what it takes to construct land product that is attractive, environmentally responsible, serviced and safe, and ready for housing.
Community Solutions is a unique not for profit community service organisation, which recognises the significant and sustainable outcomes that can be achieved when the resources of communities, business, government and individuals are brought together to target issues of concern and opportunity in regional communities.
Community Solutions is currently delivering the ‘Youth Skills’ Program through the Skilling Queenslanders for Work Government Initiative, in Nambour. This 12 week program is aimed at disengaged/ at-risk youth within the community to gain the necessary practical & employability skills required to obtain sustainable employment or move into further study/ apprenticeship. Working closely, and with the support of Downes Group, Community Solutions is able to ensure these participants gain knowledge from professionals within the Construction Industry and can successfully complete the program and achieve their goals.
