SUBIACO PCYC students graduated with a Certificate I in Leadership this month.

The students were part of the PCYC and Department of Training and Workforce Development’s (DTWD) Leadership and Development program, which started at Subiaco PCYC in 2018, learning teamwork, volunteering and communication to make them job-ready.

Course trainer Alana Jones said the program brought the students another step closer on their pathway to employment.

“We are so very proud of all of them,” she said.

The students built an outdoor seating area complete with bricklaying and a herb garden and also showcased their creativity with hand designed graffiti art on pots.

Jasmine King, who completed 40 hours of volunteering when only 20 hours was required, was named Dux of the class.

The students got words of advice from Curtin MHR Julie Bishop last month when she visited Subiaco PCYC telling the students “choose your path carefully, make the most of every opportunity”.
