Traineeship & Placement Opportunities
We go beyond simply providing a certificate at the end of the qualification. At Connect ‘n’ Grow, we go one step ahead and provide students the opportunity to get a school-based traineeship while completing a course with us. Most of our qualifications provide students with a minimum of 20 hours of work placement
Engagement with Universities
We connect our students to universities for exposure. In the past, Connect ‘n’ Grow partnered with Griffith University for the Hands Up Uni Experience Camp. This provided Indigenous students from across Northern Australia a chance to learn more about studying for a health career.
Solid Foundational Skills
Our aim is to make sure that students receive industry-standard foundational skills. In order to get ahead in their careers, students need to have their concepts absolutely clear. When we train our students, we give them our undivided attention.
The Connect ‘n’ Grow Qualification courses actually count as points towards the Senior Certificate of Education for students.
Industry Standard Trainers
Our trainers are passionate about education and are always at the beck and call of their students. We ensure that our trainers are up-to-date with the most recent updates in the Health and Community Service sector.
I finished my certificate II in Health Support Services with Connect 'n' Grow in year 11 at Kirwan State High School. I was lucky enough to get a school-based traineeship at Northern Australia Primary Health Limited in year 12, completing my certificate III in Health Services Assistance with Connect 'n' Grow. Through the support of Connect 'n' Grow and Seed Foundation, I have now secured a full-time traineeship at the Townsville Hospital. This has really changed my life!

Throughout my time doing my course I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Connect n Grow to further enhance my knowledge in the field of allied health. It is really easy to access the modules, lectures and assessments. All the information I have learnt through the modules have come in use while going through the assessments. I look forward to completing my Certificate III in Health Services with the help of Connect n Grow.

The Connect N Grow Hub is so easy to use. The lectures line up perfectly with the assessments, we're guided every step of the way through our practicals. I feel really prepared going into work placement, and hopefully a job in the health industry when I graduate.
