That’s why we have a full-time Training and Employment Manager whose job is to deliver a unique training and employment initiative. This program, known as SPARK, will use many aspects of the project to generate economic opportunities for local people.
The SPARK initiative complements activities we’re already undertaking in Ginninderry and the region. These include: a broad program of stakeholder consultation; planning around a wide range of business and community services, facilities and infrastructure; and extensive social and environmental sustainability initiatives.
Emma Sckrabei, who is responsible for heading up SPARK, is also participating in the West Belconnen Network Leadership Group: a group which seeks to work with residents to improve access to services such as health, education, housing and justice. These connections are crucial as we design services for the community at Ginninderry.
