Director of Continuous Learning
25 May, 2017
Following an exhaustive recruitment process conducted by TrakSearch, I am delighted to advise that Tennille Bertram has been appointed as Director of Continuous Learning at Mater Dei.
Tennille joins Mater Dei with considerable experience dealing with young adults with disabilities particularly in the field of acquired brain injury. Tennille has worked at the Royal Rehabilitation Centre in Sydney, the Liverpool Brain Injury Rehabilitation Unit, Mid Western Brain Injury Rehabilitation Program, Royal Private Rehabilitation and Westmead Brain Injury Unit. Her passion is to improve the lives of people with a disability.
Tennille is a qualified Speech Pathologist having completed a BA in Applied Science (Speech) and a Masters of Health Science majoring in Research, both from Sydney University.
Tennille's most recent position was with the Sydney Catholic Education Office working with teachers to develop evidence based interventions for students with additional learning support needs.
Tennille brings a warm and engaging personality to Mater Dei and a capacity, commitment and imagination to bring to life this important initiative in the life of Mater Dei and young adults who have completed their compulsory schooling.
Tennille's appointment to this new role marks an exciting time in the evolution of programs offered by Mater Dei that currently include an Early Intervention Program and a K-12 School Program.
I envisage that the emerging opportunities in the Mater Dei post school program will differ from existing programs in that they will be;
- Focused on continuous learning including specific skill development.
- Evidence based.
- Informed by best practice models locally, nationally and internationally and
- Driven by the principles of self determination.
I am confident that Tennille is committed to animating these principles in the planning of Mater Dei's post school options. I am delighted that Tennille has joined the community of Mater Dei and I warmly welcome her and assure her of our confidence and support.
Tennille will take up her appointment commencing Monday 28th August.
