Community Houses are an invaluable asset and offer a chance for people to learn and develop new skills to assist in employment or recreational pursuits. In addition the North Ringwood Community House, located in 120 Oban Road, Ringwood North, provides fully accredited courses in areas such as aged care.
Tonight I was invited by the Community House to present graduation certificates to gradates of the Certificate III in Aged Care Work. With an aging population there is a growing need for people qualified in aged care and the Community House provides a friendly and more personalised environment to study such courses.
The class of 2006 must be congratulated for their efforts. The quality of both students and teachers is clearly apparent with all graduates already securing paid employment with aged care providers.
