The Year-12 students completed Certificate III qualifications in nursing and allied health, along with two years of on-the-job training at the Caboolture Hospital.
In addition, the academy also saw students involved in the partnership between St Columban’s College, Caboolture, the Hospital, and TAFE Queensland graduate with Certificate II and III qualifications in health support services.
These students completed their practical placement at the hospital.
St Columban’s College Assistant Principal, Senior Learning and Pathways, Mrs Kate Ruddy said: “This partnership has been developed to meet the large employment need in the local healthcare sector.”
Further, Mrs Ruddy shared that students can continue with their studies in the healthcare sector more broadly.
“The School-based Trainees are able to continue with their studies towards being an Enrolled or Registered Nurse, as well as working in the healthcare sector more broadly,” Mrs Ruddy said.
St Columban’s College, Caboolture Principal, Mrs Ann Rebgetz said it was a delight to see so many St Columban’s students graduate and praised the ‘very productive’ partnership with the Caboolture Hospital.
