Students undertaking these programs have not only increased skills in specific areas but some have had the opportunity to gain accreditation for Community Studies SACE units, Occupational Health and Safety Certificates, Basic First Aid Certificates and Junior Umpiring Certificates.  These programs have lead to some students gaining employment and allowed others to gain part time weekend employment.
