We take the need to support our staff with development opportunities and ensure their well-being very seriously so that we can do what we need to do in providing a wholesome learning and community support environment for our clients. We are regenerating our Strategic Plan and are in the process of re-designing some of our programs, for example our youth programs, to ensure ongoing relevance and successful outcomes for our learners.

We are also in a phase of re-building our course scope of registration to include new courses that will provide skills required by industries in our region. As we progress with this, we will be creating new opportunities for employment and careers here at The Centre.
