Two cohorts of students have recently completed their training in Certificate II in Horticulture.

In Alexandra, nine students completed their training. This training was offered by GOTAFE, in conjunction with Menzies Support Services in Alexandra and made possible by funding received from the State Government’s Regional Specialist Training Fund.

The cohort, who are disabled, commenced their studies in August 2018.

GOTAFE CEO Travis Heeney says, “GOTAFE is proud to collaborate with Menzies Support Services to deliver training in Alexandra to students. This cohort have successfully completed their studies and now have the skills that industry needs to fill roles. We congratulate these students on their accomplishments and we look forward to hearing about their next steps, whether it be further study or employment.”

Throughout the course, several participants started their own projects at home inspired by GOTAFE trainer Leigh Taig’s classes and what they had learned.

Mr Heeney says “This project has been great for the community and has helped develop facilities at Menzies Support Services to support ongoing horticultural programs.”

In Mount Beauty, eight students commenced their studies in November 2018 and recently completed as well.

A morning tea was held for students in each cohort, to celebrate the successful completion of their course.
