Bankstown Women’s Health Centre celebrates first graduates’ success

BANKSTOWN Women’s Health Centre (BWHC) has taken their support of local women a step further this year and last week celebrated the graduation of 21 women after offering their first training qualification.

Staging the Certificate IV in Disability Support course in collaboration with Phoenix Training Institute and Vital Training, BWHC hopes that by empowering women in the community to obtain certification in a much-needed field, it will help kickstart their careers.
Participant Quadsi Hofianay is thrilled to have her first qualification and said taking part in the course was the best thing she had ever done.
“I absolutely enjoyed every minute and learnt so much about aged care and caring for those with disabilities,” she said.
“The BWHC team was incredibly supportive and encouraging of our study journeys.
“I am already looking for work and feeling very confident; thank you for this wonderful opportunity.”
On the back of the success of this first course, BWC will offers its first course in hospitality next term and invites women to apply.
It will be held on Thursdays, 9am-3.30pm and will alternate between The Culinary School at Punchbowl and Greenacre Area Community Centre.
The Certificate III in Hospitality provides a pathway to work in organisations such as restaurants, hotels, motels, clubs, pubs, cafés and coffee shops.
