RSA NSW Year 12 student intiative

20 September 2012

St Francis College Leeton located in country NSW recently put in place a year 12 initiative that allowed year 12 students to complete the online RSA NSW course. Students were visited by local police to provide students with an awareness of the perils of drinking and the implications of becoming intoxicated.

In addition students were able to complete online their Responsible Service of Alcohol NSW OLGR approved course, in readiness to either seek a position within hospitality to financially support themselves once they complete year 12 and/or to undertake further study or to pursue a creeer in hospitality.

Students were  provided with current facts, figures and fines in line with the Office of Liquor, Gaming and Racing NSW (OLGR) legislation that applies to all licensed venues across NSW and other states within Australia.

The current principles of the Responsible Service of Alcohol, Duty of Care and harm minimisation were addressed by all students.

Students were awarded with a certificate at the end of their course to provide evidence of their qualification and training in this nationally accredited mandatory course.

Students, once 18 years of age, will be equipped to work in licensed venues across NSW.

Online training for year 12 students in the relation to alchohol can be seen as a win/win benefit. providing students with awareness of issues within NSW and Australia that centre on the misuse of alcohol and provides the student with teh necessary qualifications to seek work in the hospitality sector.
