DGT Employment & Training, Toowoomba , Toowoomba’s not-for-profit registered training organisation, has begun sharing the rewards of their Skilling Queenslanders for Work Certificate 2 in Horticulture course throughout the surrounding school community. DGT Employment & Training advocates for a community-focused outlook within all their courses.

The students of DGT gifted native plants grown by their trainees to the Highfields State Secondary College in a gesture to give back to the community. “As a not-for-profit organisation, it is very important for DGT to give back to the community and see the success of our courses amongst our region,” says DGT CEO Kris McCue.

“With a core focus on growing our students into active and community-centred members of society, we are proud to see our trainees work making its way in Toowoomba and surrounds,” Mr McCue says.

As an employment and recruitment specialist, DGT Employment & Training sources job placements for apprentices and trainees throughout and after their course is completed, providing long-term growth, stimulation, employment and community contribution. The Skilling Queenslanders for Work project is funded by the Queensland Government and offers students to train in multiple vocational education courses.
