What is happening in 2013?

Sandra continues to work as a consultant for Edmund Rice Education Australia supporting VET staff and ensuring VQF standards are met.

Sandra has also  been busy assisting schools with Trade Training Centre submissions and will continue with this in 2013. Successful submissions include St Peter Claver and St Augustine's Colleges; Nudgee College; St Edmund's College; St Brendan's College; Bundaberg Cluster. A number of schools missed out in 2012 due to reduced funding so Edserve will continue to support these schools in 2013.

 A large number of teachers across Australia are now using the revised Workplace Literacy Kit  - saving 2 years lesson preparation. Teachers who already use this kit should consider purchasing the new edition. The Teacher's Handbook is now on CD and has over 250 pages of models, answers and assessment tasks. The Additional Activities CD allows students to work even more activities but rather than using paper based materials, students can enter answers electronically. the new Business activity book and workbook are now available.

Lastly, but very importantly...Edserve is also supporting the marketing of a new graffiti removal product, Graffiti-Enz.  Barry Kenman from Edserve is in partnership with three others to develop and distribute this new ‘invention’ – an enzyme based, environmentally friendly product. Brisbane City Council now stocks this product at their ward offices and customer service centres, for BCC residents. If you have a graffiti problem and live in the Brisbane area, you can collect your free kit.  If you are a commercial organisation and wish to purchase the product go to  Gold Coast and Logan City Councils are also using the product and other councils are considering stocking the product as well. QR uses the product to clean trains and railway stations. Many schools are already using Graffiti-Enz. It will remove unsightly graffiti without causing damage to most painted surface. Graffiti-Enz 500 ml Trigger Bottles are also available at all Supercheap Auto Stores throughout Australia.
