Students graduate from SQW Program with brighter future

A bright future is now on the horizon for 25 students who graduated from Integreat Queensland’s Skilling Queenslanders for Work (SQW) program last month.

The students, who come from all over the world and now live in Gladstone, celebrated the completion of Certificate III in Individual Support and Community Services under the Queensland Government’s Skilling Queenslanders for Work program.

Integreat Queensland General Manager Julie Pettitt said it was a proud moment for the students after all their hard work.

“Families and friends came to support the students at their graduation and witness the next step on their continued journey of learning,” Ms Pettett said.

“Friendships were formed, skills learned, and connections made with organizations such as Integreat Queensland, which has been a significant experience for the students.

“The Queensland Government’s Skilling Queenslanders for Work program served them well as they now go into the workplace, some for the first time since moving to Gladstone.”

Integreat Queensland, formally Welcoming International Neighbours, offers a number of community-based programs to open opportunities for everyone from everywhere to get involved, feel welcome, learn new things, and contribute to a strong, thriving local community.

Ms Pettett said the success of Integreat Queensland’s Skilling Queenslanders for Work program will continue as the multicultural organisation was successful in receiving further funding from the Queensland Government.

“Integreat Queensland are proud to announce we will continue to deliver Certificate III in Individual Support and Community Services as well as Certificate III in Hospitality in 2022…,” she said.
