Robyn Green has come from a rich and varied background in caring for others.
Robyn is the new Trainer and Assessor for the CHC33015 Certificate III in Individual Support (Home and Community) and said her career was inspired after caring for her grandmother when she was young.
Many people are drawn to work at IMPACT because they like to help others. Robyn has a direct experience of working with a family member with a disability.
This experience has given Robyn a unique insight into the needs and challenges associated with age and disability, and the level of training required.
Robyn has plenty of experience working for herself as well as others in the Individual Support field.
When life threw her a curve ball, Robyn found a change of scenery was necessary and moved to Rockhampton.
There she completed a year-long Trainers and Assessors course at CQUniversity with a view to pass on her valuable experience and expertise to others. It wasn't until she made the move to Bundaberg that she was able to put her hard work into action.
Since starting last week Robyn has been amazed at the encouragement and great support she's received from staff.
She said her family members' carers had been trained at IMPACT so she knows firsthand the quality of its graduates.
“They were amazing,” she said.
Her experience with people with a disability has shown her how important it is for them to get the right support.
“I want to train the next generation of carers and help them to be the best that they can be,” Robyn said.
IMPACT is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO Code 0115).
