Our latest Gold Coast Skilling Queenslanders for Work; Work Skills Traineeship team have graduated with all nine trainees being successful in gaining employment straight after completion of the traineeship program. Most trainees have been employed in bush regeneration roles with others taking up horticultural or landscaping work. 

The trainees gained a Certificate I in Conservation & Ecosystem Management and additional accredited training in First Aid, White Card, ACDC Chemical Operators Certificate and Level I & II Chainsaw Training. 

The crew undertook a wide range of activities supported by project partners including Bornhoffen PCYC Leadership Development Centre, Queensland Parks & Wildlife Service at Springbrook National Park and David Fleay Wildlife Park, SEQwater at Hinze Dam and community groups at Nerang Country Paradise Parklands.

These activities included bush regeneration to restore rainforest, walking track maintenance, native plant propagation, revegetation, wildlife care and facilities maintenance.
