Ms Anin will form part of a small group of students, accompanied by a Charlton Brown Trainer, whose training will see them implement hygiene and sanitation programs to educate small children, the disabled and the elderly in India’s fourth largest city.
Whilst in India, the Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care student at both Charlton Brown and TRED Consultants will undertake two weeks of practical training, to gain a greater understanding of working in an international environment.
The group will engage with local schools in the region, including the Green School and the Rainbow School, and will also attend the SKILLS2015 International Conference, where Charlton Brown General Manager, Petrina Fraccaro will speak.
Ms Fraccaro said this year will mark Charlton Brown’s fourth trip to Hyderabad in India, their second trip this year.
“The Charlton Brown Global Linkages program grants students the opportunity to share their knowledge and skills in aged care, child care, disability care and the English language, with those less fortunate,” Ms Fraccaro said.
“We have enjoyed a year-long partnership with Sydney-based Training College, TRED Consultants, and Leizel is the first TRED student to apply and be awarded a scholarship from Charlton Brown.
“The Prime Minister of India is focussed on improving the country’s hygiene and sanitation, so we are pleased to provide students who are well-equipped with the knowledge and skills to advise and educate Indian locals on best practice hygiene.
“Ultimately, the Global Linkages experience allows students to gain a broader understanding of how to respectfully assist clients from culturally-diverse backgrounds, which will come in handy for when they care for such clients at some stage during their career in Australia.”
Whilst in India, Charlton Brown students and staff will also engage in the SKILLS2015 International Conference in Hyderabad on 19 November, which will gather experts from across the globe to shed light on the best practices necessary to achieve and sustain a cleaner India.
Charlton Brown’s philanthropic passion and commitment to international markets drove its establishment of the Global Linkages Scholarship Program, providing opportunities for students to engage in community work throughout Asia, alongside Charlton Brown trainers.
The Global Linkages program is part of Charlton Brown’s ongoing commitment to producing quality graduates who are effectively prepared to serve the community on a local, national and global scale.
