Launching Partnership with Bounce Australia

ACE Community Colleges Ltd and Bounce Australia are pleased to announce their partnership to deliver the internationally successful, life-changing ‘Bounce Program’ to communities across the Gold Coast beginning in early 2018.

In a first for the State, this brand new training opportunity targeting young Queenslanders aims to be the difference between yesterday’s results and tomorrow’s success.

“We are hugely excited about the potential of this program for students on the Gold Coast. The thing about life is that it does not always go to plan; and this is certainly true in the contemporary careers space, especially when you are just starting out” says ACE Community Colleges Burleigh Manager – Robyn Keenan.

“There are those unexpected challenges, curveballs, big decisions and defining moments to contend with. Sometimes we find students just need a little support to regroup, connect with the right pathway and move forward and Bounce is all of that and more. This program is training innovation at its best,” said Ms Keenan.

ACE Community Colleges, established in 1972, is now the third largest community college in the nation. Bounce Australia has grown to international proportions since its inception in 2006, building the skills, careers, confidence and lives of those wanting to make a fresh start and providing a clear path for those who need it most.

“This is an exclusive partnership between two companies who believe in the power of change, it’s a unique product offer. We are thrilled to be launching on the Gold Coast and can’t wait to start building equity in the career banks of young people across the Coast”, said CEO of Bounce Australia, Maria Smith.

“At its core Bounce focuses on employability skills, life skills, wellbeing, job readiness and empowerment for job seekers. Our program is mapped to the FSK20113 Certificate II in Skills for Work and Vocational Pathways and delivered by highly professional educators with specialist skill sets” confirmed Ms Smith.

Bounce is set to have its first student intake early in 2018 for a March commencement.
