Sunnyfield Celebrates Chatswood’s New Interactive Vocational Training Centre

On Friday the 5th of Decemeber, The Hon. Gladys Berejiklian member for Willoughby, Minister for Transport and Minister for the Hunter officially opened Sunnyfield’s Vocational Training Centre at Chatswood. The new training facilities were launched with a celebratory morning tea shared by clients and guests.

Sunnyfield Enterprises provides meaningful employment for people, primarily with an intellectual disability, in commercially competitive businesses that pride themselves on being sustainable social enterprises.

Sunnyfield is grateful to be the recipient of a number of grants awarded by the NSW Government as part of the Community Building Partnership Grant Program. These grants have supported the development of the Vocational Training Centre as well as amenity upgrades at the facility.

The Vocational Training centre provides an interactive and stimulating learning environment, which will facilitate improved client development in the areas of communication, employment and life skills. A key feature of the facility is the new technology available to  employees, including interactive white boards and Ipads.

Supported Employees and Transition to Work Students have the opportunity to follow interests in different career areas which may include hospitality, retail, horticulture, manufacturing or business administration and are supported to explore future employment options in their chosen field.

“Sunnyfield is excited to celebrate the official opening of our Vocational Training Centre. As a result of the NSW Government Community Community Building Partnership Grant Program, Sunnyfield is able to provide clients with a well-equipped environment which is designed to develop skills and employment opportunities for people with disability.” CEO, Caroline Cuddihy.
