The Government has committed $16 million to set up one-stop-shop Skills and Jobs Centres based at TAFEs across Victoria.
With Skills and Jobs Centres opening over the next few months, they will be the first port-of-call for students looking to start training, workers needing to re-skill or retrain, and for employers to meet workforce needs.
What are Skills and Jobs Centres?
If you are looking to train or reskill, the Skills and Jobs Centres should be your first port-of-call to get expert advice on training and employment opportunities.
These one-stop-shops offer a range of support services for individuals and businesses.
Our TAFEs are the key hubs for all the Skills and Jobs Centres, ensuring that the centres are tailored to meet the needs of their local communities and industries.
Though the individual Centres are locally focused, they are also connected, meaning your local Skills and Jobs Centre is able to link you into the Centre or TAFE that best suits your particular training needs.
The Centres also work across a broad range of industries so that all employers and firms can benefit from their local Centre’s work.
Who will use a Skills and Jobs Centre?
Skills and Jobs Centres are aimed at:
- prospective students
- apprentices and trainees
- unemployed or retrenched workers.
What services will they provide?
Skills and Jobs Centres offer advice and a range of services including:
- apprenticeship and traineeship advice
- referral to additional service providers offering welfare support and financial advice
- job search skills and resume preparation assistance
- assistance to identify existing skills with the opportunity to formalise these through Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)
- access to information on employment trends, industry areas with skills shortages and employment opportunities
- assistance with career and training plans, identifying training qualifications that could be undertaken to make a successful career transition.
