Women of Biloela and district have the opportunity to sign up to a FREE Career and Personal Development Program with the first workshop scheduled for October.
LEAP WRQ (Leading Effective Action Program for Women in Regional Queensland) has been developed by Maree Franettovich, CareerForce Australia and Dr Pamela Greet, FutureAG Queensland. LEAP WRQ will commence in Biloela on 20 October 2022 with a half-day workshop.
LEAP WRQ Co-Project Manager, Maree Franettovich said the Program is focussed on personal skills development and building confidence and capacity as part of a Career Personal Development Toolkit and is relevant for women, whether looking for a career boost, re-entry to the workforce, change of career direction or even first job, in small business, and also for those volunteering and wanting to enhance skills.
“A key focus of LEAP WRQ is not only, on developing confidence capacity, but also to look at a variety of career pathways and particularly identifying local opportunities”, Ms Franettovich said.
“There’s so much to offer in regional and rural communities and now with better quality training and study options available ‘online’, you don’t have to leave where you want to live to forge a career.
LEAP WRQ will run in a hybrid format commencing with the face-to-face workshop followed by online group sessions (from November – March) to complement the workshop and extend the learning. Individual coaching sessions will provide further support for participants to implement their personal plans initiated at the workshop.
LEAP WRQ Co-Project Manager, Dr Pamela Greet, said the Program will finish with a celebration event in Biloela, as it’s vital to celebrate success.
“The Program is limited to 20 participants to enable an individual focus. Applications will close on Wednesday 12 October 2022.
LEAP WRQ has been made possible with a National Careers Institute Partnership Grant – Career Opportunities and Pathways for Women. Callide Dawson Chamber of Commerce has partnered with CareerForce Australia, and has been instrumental in bringing LEAP WRQ to fruition with on the ground support also from Banana Shire.
