SACARE and Enhance Training, Finalists for the South Australian Training Awards 2018

On Friday the 7th of September SACARE, alongside Hessel Group - Enhance Training, attended 'The South Australian Training Awards' for 2018. We were lucky enough to be a finalist with Enhance Training for the ‘Industry Collaboration Award’ for our joint training program, 'Disability Support Worker Pre-Employment Program’.

The program itself was earlier this year and was a resounding success for all involved. If you would like to find out a bit more about the course, please read our earlier blog post here.

Although we did not win, we are still delighted to be finalists and thought we would give you a little update on the continuing achievements of the program.

Collaboration with Hessel Group started in 2016 on a Certificate III in Individual support training program which saw a 90% completion rate and 80% employment outcomes. Some of the graduates from this initial program are still working for SACARE today and even made it to join us at the awards night. This collaboration has seen over 60 individuals being trained, with successful completions and employment outcomes of an average of 75%.

We’re very proud of the collaboration we have with Enhance Training and its continuing success. Although we cannot take all the credit alone. Darrel Tan, from Enhance Training also had this to share about other partners;

“Over the past 2 years, we have worked with SACARE on several pre-employment projects and have involved partners such as RenewalSA, ATEC, STATUS, Interskills and the Disability Hubs in the programs and we would like to extend our sincere thanks and congratulations to them as well.

We would also like to acknowledge and thank the Department for Industry and Skills for the funding opportunities as well as the Regional Managers for their inputs and involvement in these programs.

We are proud to be part of such a strong collaboration and believe that it is through these relationships that we are able to provide industry specific training and job experiences with true employment opportunities. The positive outcomes achieved span not only to the students and stakeholders but also the industry as a whole.

We sincerely like to thank the staff at SACARE on the dedication, flexibility and involvement that has made this a truly successful collaborative effort and we look forward to continuing growing and strengthening this relationship.”

- Darrel Tan, RTO Manager, Hessel Group/Enhance Training

The next batch of training sessions have already started for our collaboration with Enhance Training, but there will be more held in the future.

From all of us here at SACARE we would like to say thank you to Darrell and the whole team at Enhance training for making this program such a success for both us and all of the graduates involved!
