Learning to get ahead in a getting by world

Family and friends attending the Northern Futures Getting Ahead Graduation for Semester 1 were treated to a special performance by former Northern Futures participant Zoe Prem.

Zoe completed both the Getting Ahead and Business Basics courses at Northern Futures before securing a traineeship at Barwon Health where she now works with the executive team.

Zoe has used her passion for theatre to develop a personal monologue that tells of her struggle with anxiety and her courage and determination to navigate the ‘road of life’ on her own terms without the ’stop signs’ getting in her way.

Zoe’s remarkable performance left the audience awe inspired and we wish her well as she continues to forge her own path in her career and in life.

Getting Ahead graduate Lisa is about to begin her own journey as a Barwon Health trainee and spoke of the way the course helped her identify what she needed to change to achieve what she wanted out of life.

Graduate Anne Marie also spoke of the personal growth she experienced and how much she learnt during visits by Industry partners and from other students in the class.

Eight people completed the 15 week program which aims to give participants a better understanding of the kitbag of personal resources we all have available to help us get ahead with our lives, not just get by.

Congratulations to all our hardworking Getting Ahead graduates.
