26 June 2017
Community College Gippsland is opening its doors to local people for two information and enrolment days encouraging mid-year entry to its Semester 2 courses this year.
If you are seeking fresh direction in your studies or career, CCG offers practical hands-on training and flexible learning opportunities for young people and mature-aged students alike.
The course enrolment Open Days are being run at CCG’s Warragul campus this Thursday 29 June and Leongatha campus on Wednesday 12 July from 10am-4pm.
Potential students interested in signing up for the mid-year intake are warmly invited to visit anytime between 10am-4pm to explore their options and chat with staff and trainers.
CEO Sue Geals said the Open Days helped CCG to better coordinate the large number of enquiries by Community Services and Hair and Beauty already received for Semester 2.
“We will have on offer all Hair, Beauty, Community, Business Services, Foundation and Rural courses for Semester 2, so there will information handouts and direct advice available.
“People are welcome to make an appointment at any stage to chat about enrolling in any of our other courses they might be interested in,” she said.
“These mid-year Open Days also help us to identify and cater for other industry interests and trainee development needs as they arise. People often seek a change direction at this time.”
CCG offers nationally accredited courses in Business, Community Services, Hairdressing, Beauty, Horticulture, Agriculture, Equine, General Education for Adults and VCAL.
Ms Geals said many of CCG’s courses gave students opportunities for industry experience through work placement and practical training settings to increase their job-ready skills.
“This is especially so in our Community Services courses where students have opportunity to build practical skills and knowledge for careers in aged care, disability services, early childhood education and care and education support roles in schools,” she said.
CCG’s Hair and Beauty training salons at Warragul and Leongatha allow students to build skills with customers of all ages to prepare for their careers. The College also offers accredited training for apprentices providing quality hands-on training close to home.
“Our campus farm offers plenty of practical learning opportunities for people who love working outdoors. They can gain qualifications in Agriculture and Horticulture working with cattle, using farm machinery and equipment or learning in hydroponic hot houses.
“CCG is also one of the few places in Australia to offer equine training in a real racing stable at our Gippsland Harness Training Centre at Warragul.
“It’s already home to many great success stories mainly due to our dedicated team who have developed strong industry partnerships with local trainers and Harness Racing Victoria,” Ms Geals said.
CCG is a not-for-profit adult education and training provider and its main Warragul campus is located at 71 Korumburra-Warragul Road. The Leongatha campus is located at Howard Street.
