Fourteen students attended the latest Institute of Training Graduation at Bunbury PCYC, with 12 students taking home a Certificate I in Leadership

Certificate I in Leadership is a bridging course that assists young people to develop employability and leadership skills as well as encouraging increased community participation.

After completing the latest Leadership I Course at Bunbury PCYC, seven students have enrolled in a 10-week Certificate II in Leadership Course, where they will continue their studies.

Four graduates have been presented with the opportunity to enrol in a one year course, that upon completion will give them a Certificate II in Construction and the ability to gain an apprenticeship in the construction industry.

Two graduates have decided to return back to traditional school and one graduate, who is passionate about becoming a chef, is working full time and applying to the South Metropolitan TAFE to work towards achieving her dream career.

Every graduation fills us with pride watching our students turn their lives around by progressing onto further education or training.

Inspector John Bouwman, South West Police District, Sergeant Mark Smith, Officer in Charge, Collie Police Station, Sergeant Dave Groenenberg, Manager, South West District Engagement and Support, David Reid, PCYC Executive Manager, Centres, Activities and Programs and Peter Tranter, PCYC Executive Manager, People and Safety all attended the graduation to show their support and celebrate the students achievements.

Some special awards were also presented by Bunbury PCYC Trainers at the graduation to acknowledge some of the students achievements over the duration of the course.

Connor was presented with the ‘Leader of Tomorrow’ award, Abby was awarded for being ‘Most Consistent’, Zac and Connor took home a ‘100% Attendance’ award, and Talya obtained the First Aid award.
