After joining Capricornia Catchments in early 2023 as one of 14 trainees in our first round of Skilling Queenslanders for Work, Caine has come on board two days a week as SQW Project Officer. To date, he has used inside knowledge of the program to coordinate a new intake of 17 trainees and in relationship with Rockhampton Regional Council and Yalga Binbi Institute, he will be putting in place many different and varied training opportunities for the new trainees to embrace.

The Qld State Government SQW program brings together people from all walks of life and often tricky backgrounds to collectively receive an opportunity to overcome what barriers they have experienced up to now. Caine has enjoyed the fast-paced challenge of helping others to overcome the speedbumps life so often lays out and he looks forward to helping those who risk losing hope to see that together, we can all have value and purpose….. And plant some trees along the way.
