Training And Work Experience

Having the right skills or a wide variety of skills can increase your employment options and give you more life choices.

Training and learning is different for everyone. So, let’s assess your skills - where you are now and what you’d like to do.

Then we’ll develop a practical plan to get you the right skills and job.

We can help with both formal qualifications and more general training:

  • Community-based training in industries and skills areas where there are local employers who have job opportunities
  • Literacy and numeracy skills
  • Workplace preparation skills
  • Certificate courses
  • On-the-job paid work experience
  • Personal development and practical life skills

Getting That Job

We’ll help you with your resume, job applications and preparation for interviews.

We’ll even help you approach employers and make sure you have the work clothing, tools and other essential items for starting a new job.

After you begin your position, we’ll stay in contact and offer you advice and mentoring until you are really comfortable in your new job.
