Unlocking the Power of Play: How Play Australia Elevates Our Community and Why It Matters for Our Courses

In today's fast-paced world, the fundamental right and joy of play are often overlooked, yet it's crucial for both children and adults alike. Play Australia, the nation's peak advocacy organisation for play, has championed the cause of play since its inception in 1914. Its commitment to ensuring safe, interesting, and accessible play spaces for all is not just commendable but essential for building healthy communities. As an RTO offering courses like AHCPGD212, AHCPGD311, and AHCPGD510, we see a direct connection between Play Australia's mission and the objectives of our programs. Here's why.

The Essence of Play Australia

Play Australia envisions a connected and healthy Australia where play is a daily routine for everyone. This vision aligns with the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, advocating for every child's right to engage in play and recreational activities. Play isn't just about fun; it's about learning, exploring, and developing essential life skills.

As the Australian branch of the International Play Association (IPA), Play Australia supports outdoor play through inspiration, advice, and professional services, ensuring the human rights of all children to play. This commitment is something we deeply share and integrate into our training courses.

Why Play Matters for Our Courses

Our courses, including AHCPGD212 (Conduct Visual Inspection of Park Facilities), AHCPGD311 (Conduct Operational Inspection of Park Facilities), and AHCPGD510 (Conduct Comprehensive Inspection of Park Facilities), are intricately designed with the ethos of play and outdoor engagement at their core. These courses not only equip our students with the skills necessary for their professional growth but also instil an appreciation for creating environments that support healthy, active play.

By aligning with Play Australia's values — being connected for change, inclusivity, adaptability, and promoting daily play — our courses prepare professionals who are not just experts in their field but also advocates for creating spaces that enrich communities through play.
