2017 Qld Schools VET Conference

Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, QLD

Major Sponsor

Binnacle Training has partnered with Connect 'n' Grow (RTO 40518) to offer a Dual Certificate II + Certificate III Health & Community Services program for QLD Schools. This partnership sees two like-minded organisations team up to form ‘Binnacle Connect’ – led by Directors Aaron Bulow and Michael Gleadow with a 10-year history as working colleagues. Connect ‘n’ Grow – an award-winning RTO - was founded in 2012 by Michael Gleadow (a former school teacher) and Naomi Gleadow (a medical doctor) off the need to improve the health and well-being of low socioeconomic status students from remote and very remote communities across Northern Australia.

This led to the development and delivery of a health and community services program with wraparound support that presents routes into tertiary education and employment. Binnacle Connect works by Connect ‘n’ Grow offering the dual Certificate II + Certificate III Health & Community Services program via the Binnacle Lounge (the same online platform currently serving over 250 Queensland schools with Binnacle’s Certificate programs in Business, Sport and Fitness). This year, a pilot program (dual Certificate II Health program) has successfully been implemented in 14 schools across the State. In 2018, the opportunity to partake in Certificate II and III offerings will be extended to all Queensland schools. Register now to be a part of this Perfect Partnership!
