Working with our local communities

We work with:

  • local partners and stakeholders to deliver events, expos, workshops and presentations to increase opportunities for people in our communities to participate in education and employment.
  • other service providers to support their client’s career and education goals
  • local businesses and industry to keep informed of employment opportunities and to link in job seekers, including apprentices, with employers, and
  • individuals, connecting them into local community learning and referral services.


We run tailored workshops on campus and in the community on career planning, job searching, job readiness and interview skills and resume writing.

Thanks to the teacher who made the day engaging - I think it is the most I have heard from my son [talking about the session] in a long time!!  Just wanted to applaud you for offering this."
