More help for job seekers
Media release, 29 May 2019
Mature age job seekers in Far West NSW and Mid North SA will soon have access to more specialised support when it comes to finding work.
Sureway Employment & Training will introduce the Australian Government’s Career Transition Assistance (CTA) program under the Careerway banner on July 1, which assists people aged 45+ to build confidence and gain the skills needed to remain competitive in today’s labour market.
CEO Matthew Hall said that the business was well equipped to deliver the innovative new program, having successfully assisted thousands of people into work in the past 12 months.
“Sureway have been delivering services to the Far West Orana and Mid North SA communities since 2000 and 2015 respectively,” Mr Hall said.
“We understand the challenges that face people living in these often isolated areas, and we are excited to be able to deliver a new range of specialised supports under the CTA program to mature age job seekers.”
Program participants will learn various skills to increase their job readiness for the modern workforce, such as how to articulate transferrable skills and experience in job applications, and be provided with practical assistances to enhance their digital literacy.
Mr Hall said that the program would be a great boost for the communities, and the business was excited to introduce the service.
“Sureway have a long-standing reputation for providing quality employment services including youth, indigenous and disability services in rural and regional areas of Australia,” he said.
“So we are excited to be able to extend our services to offer this tailored support to mature age job seekers to help maximise their success.”
The Career Transition Assistance (CTA) program will be rolled out from July 1 across Australia.
