SPARK Program

YMCA Canberra Children’s Services is a proud partner in the SPARK program supporting women and men into a qualification and career in early childhood.

We partnered with Ginninderry, CIT and North Belconnen Community Services to deliver the Certificate III in Children’s Services.

In March students participated in an information session which included group activities as part of a selection process.

The program is supported by Holt ELC with practical work placements and guidance given to the students 2 days per week.

In 2018 Holt ELC supported 5 students with all of them successfully completing the qualification and many moving into employment with the YMCA.

Earlier this year, one of our SPARK Students, Cynthia, was featured in a news story in WIN TV.
