CMC graduates celebrate

CMC commemorated ten of their staff recently at a barbecue to celebrate their graduation.

The staff, are the latest graduates through CMC’s Pathways Lifeskills Program, who have completed their Certificate Three in Cleaning Operations through  Daniels Associates.

CMC’s Pathways Lifeskills Program offers candidates an opportunity to learn cleaning, maintenance and administrative skills through a staged process of formal training support and mentoring.

The staff, located in Sydney and Canberra, celebrated their first achievement at a barbecue lunch with their colleagues.

CMC Indigenous Services Managing Director Michael O’Loughlin said that the Pathways Lifeskills Program has given the staff an opportunity to upskill and receive formal qualifications in cleaning.

“For some of our staff, it would not be possible to achieve formal qualifications and in some cases this is their first opportunity to do so.”

“We are proud to be able to offer this to them as part of their progression in the workplace. It allows them to seek new skills and have opportunity, if they choose, to progress in their cleaning careers,” Michael said.

“We believe our program has been a success and a true indication of its effectiveness is that our candidates have remained engaged and successfully completed their course. Out of the ten candidates that have received their certificate, five are of Indigenous heritage."

CMC will extend the program and offer it to staff in the Northern Territory and South Australia in the coming months.
