Learning Towards Work Program

FREE training to help you get your dream job!

MRAEL’s youth support program Learning Towards Work is designed to help young people aged 15-24 transition into the workforce. Learning Towards Work is a FREE community-based program.

There are limited places available and three course locations available during 2017 – Mackay, Hervey Bay and Scarborough (North Brisbane).

These courses consist of six weeks classroom training and two weeks on the job work experience (8 weeks in total, two days per week). You will also learn practical computer skills, how to apply for jobs (including how to write an effective resume and cover letter) and how to make yourself stand out from the crowd of other applicants with proper interview techniques and other work preparatory skills!

Some of the benefits of the program include:

  • Interactive learning activities to build your skills and self-confidence in conducting an effective job search;
  • Guest speakers to provide an insight into what employers look for in job applicants;
  • Support from an experienced and knowledgeable trainer;
  • Guided advice on how to set personal goals and developing a plan to achieve them
  • Opportunities to undertake activities that determine the most suitable career path for your individual skills, interests and experience.
  • Work preparation training that is tailored to the needs of local industry.
