Health Hub recognition as Premier’s Industry Collaboration Award Finalist
Mabel Park State High School Health Hub received well deserved recognition for its drive and innovation, as one of three finalists for the Premier’s Industry Collaboration Award, at the State Training Awards held on Friday, 1 September 2017.
This Award, sponsored by Advance Queensland, recognises outstanding collaboration providing exemplary skills development between an employer or industry body and a registered training organisation.
The Mabel Park State High School Health Hub, led by Judy Fewtrell, Senior Schooling Head of Department, provides a suite of unique health (and more recently, NDIS disability sector) programs, designed to benefit students and industry alike.
Judy said, “the success of the Health Hub is only possible with the support of Industry”. Judy acknowledged the collaborative role My Horizons, Logan Hospital, WorkAbility Qld and the Department of Education and Training have played in breaking down barriers to industry participation for students across the Logan area, which has widened student’s understanding of job opportunities across the health and disability sectors.
The Health Hub is also an important regional Youth Attraction Strategy, helping to address sector supply and demand challenges as well as Logan’s high unemployment rate through its successful School Based Traineeship program.
Congratulations to Mabel Park State High School Health Hub and the winners and finalists of the 2017 Queensland Training Awards.
