COTA Victoria is leading a new innovative project to support jobseekers 50 years and over into paid work.
Participants in the Reach, Train, Employ project are supported to re-skill and find paid work. The project focuses on providing training to get jobs in the aged care and disability sectors, to meet a growing demand of more than 17000 new jobs in Victoria by 2023.
COTA Victoria is currently looking for participants to join this exciting new opportunity. The project is open to jobseekers who are 50 years and older and living in Brimbank or Melton areas of Melbourne.
Participants in the project will be supported to complete a Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing and Disability). The certificate will be delivered by RMIT University with a brand new curriculum co-designed by industry experts and people with lived experience. Participants receive a wide range of supports including: employment assistance such as resume writing, interview techniques and understanding the employment market; IT and digital literacy support; financial counselling; and employment placement support.
