What is a Skills and Jobs Centre?
If you are looking to train or reskill, the Skills and Jobs Centre offers you expert advice on training and employment opportunities. Funded by the Victorian Government, these walk-in centres offer a range of support services for individuals and businesses tailored to meet the needs of local communities and local industries. Though the individual Centres are locally focused, they are connected, meaning your local Skills and Jobs Centre can link you into the Centre or TAFE that best suits your particular training needs. Skills and Jobs Centres work with individuals, industry, business and community to provide new, and strengthened, links to TAFE. Why not contact your local Skills and Jobs Centre’s Relationships Manager to discuss what we can offer you?
