National Youth Week

Hi everyone – it’s only just around the corner now!   We’d love to see you at the morning tea being held at CTC (in collaboration with our partners, Darumbal Community Youth Services and Roseberry Community Services) on Wednesday 13th April, from 10:30 – 11:30am.  There will be a yummy morning tea to indulge in and plenty of people who all want to celebrate the vital role that young people play in our society and the amazing stories they share.

Can you please share the attached flyer it amongst your networks, and try to bring along a young person/s who you think might be interested in attending.  Please note that an RSVP is required so we can ensure we order enough food to tempt your tastebuds.   Looking forward to seeing you there!

Ready for Work pre-employment courses

CTC is rolling out its next series of pre-employment courses under the Ready For Work program.  Our “I’m Ready” courses commence on Monday 8th February – please see the attached flyer.  These courses are targeted to 15-24 year olds who have been unemployed for 6 months or more, are eligible for employment services or assistance, and who have significant barriers to learning and/or employment.

We still have some places left in these excellent courses, so please contact us for details on 1300 999 282.

Courses are conducted in 4 week slots of 9am – 12pm, Monday to Friday, and include a diverse range of topics from the usual job seeking skills right through to making the most of your money, dressing for success,  maintaining good health, and  dealing effectively with conflict.  This will then be followed by 2 weeks of work experience.

We are keen to hear from any employers who are willing to take on a young person to give them a taste of what it’s like to work and to help build up their work ethic.  Employers could use this work experience  opportunity to ‘trial’ potential future employees or simply as a way to help cultivate our local future workforce – all for no cost at all!  CTC has the appropriate insurance coverage for any employers who might have any concerns in this regard.  All work experience candidates will come to the employers ready to undertake their on-site induction, and will have already undertaken CTC’s own on-line generic safety inductions.

If you know of anyone who’d be prepared to accept a young person into their workplace to undertake work experience for two weeks, please let contact Shellee Baker on 1300 999 282.

Attached please find a flyer promoting one of the main fundraising events that CTC participates in each year.  We do pride ourselves in putting on a fantastic “spread” so why not join us at this great little fundraiser and do your bit for cancer research and support for those living with its effects.  It’s a nice way to catch up with people too, so we look forward to seeing you, your colleagues and friends on May 28th at our new premises in Fitzroy Street.

Recommissioning of Youth Services

To assist with our understanding of the Qld Government’s recommissioning of youth services, and to assist in our preparation for same, QCOSS will be coming to Rockhampton on Tuesday 8th October. We will hear the latest on where things are at with this process and gain some guidance on how we can best prepare for the new paradigm in the delivery of community services. It’s anticipated that QCOSS might also roll out some tools that will assist NGOs to be able to respond well to the new way of doing business.

Can you please put that date into your diary and calendar and ensure that your agency is able to send along a representative on the day. Specifics about times and segments are still being worked out – that will be advised once that’s locked in. The venue will be at CTC’s Rockhampton site in Armstrong Street, North Rockhampton.

In the meantime, if there are any topics or issues that you’d like addressed at this time, please feel welcome to submit those directly to me and I’ll arrange for those to go onto the program.

I look forward to catching up with you all then, if not beforehand!
