Skills and Jobs Centres

Skills and Jobs Centres should be your first port-of-call when you are looking to enter the workforce, start training, re-skill, or for employers to meet their workforce needs.

What are Skills and Job Centres?

Help for auto supply chain workers

Based in TAFEs across Victoria, Skills and Jobs Centres provide expert advice on training and employment opportunities, including:

  • careers advice
  • help with job searching
  • assistance preparing resumes
  • apprenticeship and traineeship advice
  • assistance using the Victorian Skills Gateway
  • referral to welfare support and financial advice
  • assistance in using your existing skills to align to a new job or to undertake new training (Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL))
  • information on employment trends, areas with a shortage in skills and employment opportunities.
  • assistance with career and training plans, identifying training qualifications that could be undertaken to make a successful career transition.

The Centres also engage with a broad range of local industries, ensuring that the centres are tailored to meet the needs of their local communities and industries.

The Government has invested over $16 million into one-stop-shops, the Skills and Jobs Centres.

  • prospective students
