Hi! I'm part of a group that is applying for a grant from Washington State to do Permaculture Design Courses for unemployed/underemployed, in hopes of sharing with them basics of Green Skills for re-entering the job market. As far as we've found, there's no other group in the US that has received a grant quite like this. And we're lacking some data that would help us secure the grant. It looks like according to the Australian TAFE system, a PDC for unemployed is closest to your Certificate I. That you guys know of, has anyone tracked the efficacy of job placement after a Certificate I training? Or is there any tracking/surveys of job placement for any of the APT? We've been looking for this info for about a week and would need it by Thursday night our time, so we can present it to the grantors by Friday. Below is what I found from Permaculture Australia website. I've contacted but haven't heard anything yet. Kelda Certificate I in Permaculture – provides basic skills training in permaculture under full supervision. Suited to secondary school students, those who are unemployed or working on labour market/community development programs including indigenous persons.
