Women in Australia were amongst the hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. Facilitated by VU Polytechnic in collaboration with industry and community, this 8-week program aims to equip women to prepare for work and training opportunities. Benefits of the program include:
- identifying your unique strengths and skills to build confidence
- building job recruitment knowledge
- skills development
- understanding different career opportunities and the training that can get you there
- networking with industry bodies
- building lasting relationships with a group of like-minded women.
The program starts on Tuesday 9 March 2020. From day one you’ll connect with industry partners, such as WomenCan Australia and support services such as our Skills and Jobs Centre to find out more about what they do and how you can get back in the workforce or change careers. You’ll move on to participate in a range of practical workshops targeted at discovering your unique strengths.
During the program you’ll continue to participate in weekly activities, such as online short courses, mentor sessions and face-to-face workshops, to further your skillset and job readiness. Don’t worry, you won’t be left to your own devices – throughout the program you will be well-equipped with resources to support you and your learning.
