Whether you’re a young person starting out in the workforce or simply unsure which training course is right for you, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the wide range of training pathways available, or like your CV is coming up a little short.
We’ve all been there: on one hand, you’re ready to hit the ground running but you’re also totally freaked out by an intimidating job description or pros who seem to have it all together with heaps of experience.
Well guess what? From your favourite hobbies to unique lifetime experiences, you’ve actually got plenty of skills that can be developed into work skills once you find the right training opportunities.
A visit to one of the many Jobs and Skills Centres across WA will help you channel all of those valuable life skills into a new job or training pathway.
Every centre is staffed by a team that can give you completely free, practical help on all things employability – from job opportunities and career advice, to what extra training is available and how to choose a course that will best suit your goals.
Best of all? Lots of that extra job-ready training is either free of charge, or heavily reduced – there more than 130 free and over 160 half price courses, in fact!
All advice is specially tailored to you and your life experiences – including culturally sensitive employment and career services for Aboriginal people and people from linguistically and culturally diverse backgrounds.
If you’re on the other side of the coin and looking to hire some fresh new talent, the Jobs and Skills Centres can also help you find the perfect fit for your business, whether connecting you to apprentices and trainees, resources to help you with recruitment and workforce planning, or specialised advice on Aboriginal recruitment strategies.
Ready to turn your life skills into a new career? Call your local Jobs and Skills Centre on 13 64 64 or head to the Jobs & Skills WA website to find out more.
