Student Profile: Keely

February 3, 2021

A mother of two on the ASD spectrum, Keely, decided to study with genU Training to learn more about ways to support her children and others in her life.

Undertaking and successfully completing a CHC33015 Certificate III in Individual Support, Keely is now continuing her studies with a CHC43115 Certificate IV in Disability and CHC43315 Certificate IV in Mental Health.

Keely is driven by a passion to want to “make a difference in other people’s lives”, making her the ideal fit for entering the workforce in the community space. She also saw the opportunity to undertake practical training to “gain a qualification for future employment.”

Originating from Alice Springs, Keely is proud of her heritage as part of the Amatajere tribe, who are located just north of Alice Springs. Keely moved to Geelong 8 years ago with her first child and 5 months pregnant with her second, being a stay at home mum before a friend advised her to undertake a course withg genU Training, speaking highly of the support she received there.

A single mum of two boys with no family living locally, Keely has a network of support workers to give her assistance in the day-to-day. Holding this network in the upmost regard and respect, Keely sings the praises as her motivation to study; “the way they have made a diffence in my life inspires me to make a difference in other people’s life.”

Keely found the hands on experience of her course best for her, as well as the approach of her trainer; “her approach to training was exactly what I needed as an adult learner… and took my home life intro consideration throughout the course.”

Upon completion of her studies, Keely hopes to move back to the Northern Territory “to work in remote communities and areas with my people and make a difference to their lives.”
