Recruits wanted to Get Set for Work

COMMUNITY Solutions is recruiting for the Get Set for Work program in Emerald, starting this month.

The employment and training program is designed to assist youth between 15 and 19 years old, who have disengaged, or are at risk of disengaging, from school.

As an alternative learning pathway, the program aims to support them into employment, further training or a return to school.

This program is funded by the Department of Employment, Economic Development and Innovation under the Skilling Queenslanders for Work initiative.

Program participants engage in a broad range of activities and accredited training to develop their work-readiness and life skills including cooking workshops, job interview preparation, volunteer work, resume and cover letter development and work experience, and information on career pathways and further training opportunities.

Get Set for Work also provides an excellent opportunity for the local community to get involved with supporting young people to reach their goals.

Any businesses or service providers wishing to be involved in this year’s program, by way of information sessions, resources, work experience or employment opportunities, should phone Cherie for further information.
