NQ's nomadic TAFE teacher

17-Apr-2012

For Charters Towers TAFE teacher Frances Williams, an average month on the road can lead to some high mileage on the odometer.

 

 

Ms Williams is the regional community services teacher for the Barrier Reef Institute of TAFE, servicing industry clients and students across five of the Institute’s North Queensland campuses.

Community service programs offered at the Institute’s regional campuses include Certificate III and IV Disability Work, Certificate IV and Diploma of Community Services and Diploma of Employment.

Although based in Charters Towers, Ms Williams also delivers these qualifications in the Burdekin, Bowen, Cannonvale and Ingham.

These regional programs have rolling starts, meaning students can enrol at any time throughout the year as there are no set commencement dates. The training is offered externally, with students able to study at their own pace with support from Ms Williams.

Although her role is hectic, Ms Williams enjoys the pace of life on the road.

“The most enjoyable part of my job is meeting people from all over North Queensland,” Ms Williams said.

“Working in the community services sector is a very rewarding career; your role is to support the most vulnerable people in the community and empower them to become as independent as possible.

“Along the way you learn so much from their experiences, which challenges you to be better at your job and at life.

“As someone who lives in a regional centre, I also understand first-hand the difficulty the industry faces in up-skilling staff. I work very closely with employers to tailor the program delivery to suit the particular organisational needs.”

For those who already have community service skills and experience, these qualifications can be completed through Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). The RPL process can be used to fast-track a formal qualification and is ideal for people with industry relevant skills or knowledge which have been acquired through paid or unpaid work, life experience and community work.
