Training with Talent Pool 

Aboriginal youth doing aquatic training in swimming pool

Teach, train, transform.

Talent Pool candidates undertake a transformational journey as they 'dive' into their training, completing the necessary accredited and non-accredited training to become professionals in the aquatic industry.

 

Portfolio of Achievement:

Participants can select the training they wish to undertake, including:

  • Bronze Medallion
  • Provide First Aid
  • Pool Lifeguard 
  • Pool Operations
  • Swim Teacher
  • Aquatic Trainer
  • Bronze Star

Completed qualifications result in enhanced workplace skills, industry employment, and opportunities to transition to alternative employment paths.

 

Expectations:

Talent Pool has high expectations of its candidates, who are expected to:

  • Turn up to scheduled training or courses on time
    (If you are enrolled but unable to attend, you must let the Talent Pool coordinator know at least 2 days prior to the course commencement)
  • Have a positive attitude and be willing to participate in all activities and training
  • Bring the appropriate clothing and equipment (e.g. water bottle) to training

 

Support:

The Talent Pool program has the flexibility to tailor support to meet the needs of our students by:

  • Paying for accredited training for people new to, and wanting to enter, the aquatic industry
  • Adopting a 'no-fail' policy: if a participant is unable to pass a section of the course, they can be allocated time and support to develop the necessary skills and fitness
  • Subsidising, at the program's discretion, course payments for existing indigenous staff maintained by the program or that enhances their employment opportunities (considered on a case-by-case basis)
