Mabel Park High School’s innovative Health Training Hub is helping to promote the City of Logan on a national level.

The school’s Heath Hub, a world-class school-to-work transition program, last month won the prestigious Premier’s Industry Collaboration award at the state finals of the 57th Queensland Training Awards.

Winning the accolade earned the program the right to advance to the national finals of the Australian Training Awards for Industry Collaboration in Sydney.

Councillor Steve Swenson said the Heath Hub, now in its third year, provided valuable education and training in the health industry for students in Years 10 to 12 from 14 schools across the city.

“The Health Hub is helping to ease youth unemployment by providing a supportive learning base for Logan youngsters to prepare themselves for the workforce and pursue their career dreams,” Cr Swenson said.

“Now to be showcased at a national level is a tribute to the hard work done by everyone connected to the Hub and a proud moment for the City of Logan.”

The Mabel Park High School Health Hub won its award on the back of impressive results last year.

It boasted a 93 percent completion rate among students with 70 per cent of those graduating with a Certificate II qualification.

Mabel Park High School principal Mick Hornby said courses at the Health Hub were skilling Logan school students for jobs in one of the fastest growing areas of employment.

“Our graduates are getting direct entry to jobs in the health industry,” he said.
