Maree Twibell recently graduated from the latest ACSA Hospitality Services Program in North West Tasmania. At the recent  morning tea for Graduation Day, Maree along with 6 other participants received their Participation Certificates and Statements of Attainment from ACSA’s partner Registered Training Organisation.

This ACSA initiative supports the aged services industry with the aim of ‘growing our own”. This Program focuses on developing a pool of work ready candidates for kitchen, cleaning and laundry roles in residential aged care facilities.  At the completion of the Program participants also received their Aged Services Sector ‘WORK READY SKILLS PASSPORT’, which outlines the key learning outcomes of the Program and provides clear validation to employers that the program is industry-endorsed. Following her 4 weeks of classroom training and a 3-week work placement at Coroneagh Park (Respect) in Penguin,  she was offered casual employment.

Congratulations to Maree on this wonderful achievement. Maree was very excited to share her news:

“I was extremely grateful for the opportunity to participate in the latest ACSA Hospitality Services Program which has provided me with a very positive and fulfilling outcome as I enter a new career in the aged care sector. The course enabled me to gain a great deal of knowledge and understanding into aged care whilst providing new found confidence to interact with residents, staff and classmates. I thoroughly enjoy the environment in which I am now employed and this would not have been possible without the ACSA program. A heartfelt thank you to Kate Campbell and the ACSA team”.
