Wirraway offers training in the SIS30413 Certificate III in Outdoor Recreation through a partnership with Australian Based Learning Experiences RTO No 70057. This is a nationally recognised qualification which enables our staff to run activities at the camp. All our staff have either already completed these studies, have qualifications in another area, or are experienced, supervised and ‘in-training’ as they complete these studies.
We offer this Certificate III as a full-time live-in Student. Students work at Wirraway in return for their training for a minimum of 3 days and 2 nights per week, which includes the formal training time as they learn their skills. During the year there is also time set aside for Christian discipleship to enable our students to spend time growing and developing their faith. Free food and board is provided. To be eligible to be a ’student’ with us, you must be at least 17, turning 18 within 6 months of beginning with us, have completed year 11, and have a Christian faith and a desire to communicate this with others. You will need to pass a National Police Check prior to beginning studies with us (or a Working With Children Check if in Victoria) as you will be placed at Wirraway supervising and instructing children.
As a caring community, the staff and management at Wirraway will do their best to make you feel welcome. Wirraway offers a range of support services to course participants in order to assist in the provision of environments that are conducive to safe learning. Where specific learning resources are required, we endeavour to provide access support, to ensure learners are not disadvantaged in the learning process.
Students may receive academic or vocational support from the course trainer/assessor or a designated qualified person. The student’s progress is monitored and support provided as deemed appropriate. If necessary, the student may be referred to other qualified persons, depending on the nature of the support required. Further information is contained in the attached Course Participant Information sheet.
