transition from school into further education, training and employment.
Snowy's School to Work Success Story
The staff at Mid Coast Connect are extremely proud of the achievements of  Wauchope High School student Matt Goddard, affectionately known as ' Snowy' to most of us.  Matt has participated in a number of Mid Coast Connect programs and has been recently recognised for his dedication and strong work ethic.  Matt received an award at the school's Presentation Night and has now been announced as a well-deserving recipient of a Hastings Education Award for 2018. 

We first met Matt when he was in Year 10 and participating in our Links to Learning program. The next year, Matt was employed through our Group Training Organisation as a school-based trainee and was hosted by the school where he helped to look after the grounds and ag farm. This paid employment, combined with studies in Primary Industries, resulted in Matt achieving his HSC as well as the nationally recognised qualification of Certificate II in Primary Industries. 

Matt's school-based traineeship has been the perfect foundation for his appointment as an apprentice green keeper at Wauchope Country Club. The grant from Hastings Education Fund will help with the costs of attending block release study at Kurri Kurri TAFE as part of the apprenticeship next year.

Matt has been well supported by the school and the local business community and Mid Coast Connect proudly wishes Matt all the best as he moves into his future career.
