  • Employment/Job Seeking Training/Workshops:
Hi everyone,

I’m pleased to let you know that we’re running another group of skilled migrant development program in partnership with OTEN and Internship in Australia.

The program suits skilled migrants who have good level of experience and skills from overseas and looking to start their career in Australia. The program aims to improve clients’ job seeking skill and their communication/presentation skills. 

The large bulk of the training will be delivered online but there will also be 3-4 workshops. The training includes an element of unpaid local work experience for up to 3 months in their skill area. There will also be information on industry law and work rights.

The last program we ran from Oct-Dec 2015 has seen three people found job in IT and engineering plus a few more who are still doing their work experience.

Clients who are interested should come to our information/enrolment session:

Time: 10-12pm
Date: Wed 2 March 2016
Venue: Room A-1.07, 51 Wentworth Road, Strathfield (OTEN’s office)

*clients should tell security that they’re coming to the ‘SkillME session’ when they come to the main gate. Security will then show them how to get to the room

Smart and Skilled eligibility applies to the training, which means clients must be a permanent resident or Australian citizen, or a New Zealand citizen to be eligible. Those who are not eligible may still access the unpaid work experience. Please note unfortunately there is a cost of $550 involved for local work experience which may be reduced to $109 if the client has difficulty with the cost.

Please send your rsvp to me with client’s name, mobile number, email address and their skill area.

Thank you for your attention and referral!
