As the world of work evolves, job searches and recruitment processes are too. From finding the right place to look for jobs, to online applications, having the most appropriate resume, right through to the interview process; it can feel very challenging at times. That’s where the Employability Skills Training program can help you
Depending on what you need, there are two types of EST courses available, generalised and specialised, focusing on building specific skills sets within your chosen field of employment. Each course will build on different skill sets and help improve your opportunities in getting a job. You can do one or both of these courses.
The first course (Block 1) will focus on workplace skills and knowledge, developing IT awareness, problem solving and communication skills to meet the expectations of employers.
The second course (Block 2) will help you develop your resume and improve interview techniques, focusing on job preparation and job-hunting skills. This course will also give you the opportunity to participate in Industry Awareness Experiences. These experiences will provide you with an insight into the tasks and duties of different industries.
The courses are full time (25 hours per week for 3 weeks) or part-time (15-hours per week for 5 weeks), face-to-face.
