Graduate stories

Jacky  |  Skilling Queenslanders for Work participant - Brisbane

I completed my training with breakthru in January 2018. The course was a Certificate III in Individual Support. The trainer was the best I have ever had, as she made the course so interesting and hands on. The trainer's visits and feedback while on practical work placement was super supportive and by the end of the course, I was employed!.

What may be surprising to people reading this is I am in my 60’s!! and have found my dream job!

The three R’s - The Right course, the Right Trainer and the Right Company!! Thankyou breakthru! Life can begin in your sixty’s!
