Kapooka Spouse Ready to Work Scheme
The Kapooka Spouse Ready-for-Work Scheme is a program to enhance the employment prospects for spouses of members of the 1st Recruit Training Battalion who have moved into the Wagga Wagga area. The scheme is in recognition of the difficulty for spouses to obtain employment as a result of their partner’s extreme work hours and the restricted employment market. The scheme consists of a scholarship for three specific Certificate III level courses. The courses are undertaken with the Riverina Community College. The Scheme is administered by Headquarters, Army Recruit Training Centre and funding from the Kapooka Military Area Charity Committee and the Protestant Chapel.

There are three courses that may be studied through Riverina Community College under the scheme, including either:
- Certificate III Aged Care;
