Introducing our new Youth Support Co-ordinator

​Mr Tarrant Watkins - the new YSC

My name is Tarrant Watkins. I am the new Youth Support Coordinator at Tara Shire State College. I have worked at the college for the last year as a teacher aide, and have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the students over this time.

I have a degree in Sports Coaching and Performance Analysis from University of Glamorgan, UK. I have had many years experience coaching and mentoring children and teenagers in a variety of different environments. 

My role as the school’s Youth Support Coordinator (YSC) is to provide support to students who are at risk of, or have recently disengaged in from their education or training. My focus is to engage students to continue through their senior phase of learning (completion of year 12 or equivalent).  I can also support students in the transition into further areas of education, training and/or employment.

I am really looking forward to starting the role getting better involved in the community
