My name is Brad Stallard and I’m pleased to join CHDC as its new Regional Skills Development Coordinator. This newly-created position will support regional communities to identify current and emerging jobs and to ensure there is a supply of skilled local people to meet demand. The role is fully funded under the State Government’s Regional Skills Investment Strategy.

I have a wealth of knowledge in the Vocational Education and Training sector from my previous role with CQUniversity as Associate Vice-Chancellor Central Highlands Region and Manager, Vocational Training (School of Engineering and Trades) Emerald Campus. This experience includes leading a team of vocational teachers in the Engineering and Trades area, as well as the further development of Regional Engagement, Academic Growth and the development of Campus Life within the Central Highlands Region.

I have a Graduate Certificate in Management and a Diploma of Project Management that have assisted my 18 years in educational management with Education Queensland, Central Queensland Institute of TAFE, CQUniversity and now CHDC. I currently hold several positions on local boards advocating education and training for the Central Highlands.

On a more personal note, I’m passionate about golf – both in the playing and the development of junior golf in regional Queensland. I’ve been recognised nationally for my drive for junior growth, and I sit with Queensland Golf on the development of the game in regional centres. Whilst my own game hasn’t developed to the extent that I’d like, the game allows me to escape the desk and explore the fairways of the local courses.
