New Norfolk has been active over recent months with several good placements, local training and community engagement
Tasmanian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (TCCI), in partnership with Workskills, are undertaking a comprehensive work ready programme with some of our job seekers. These job seekers undergo an intensive and personal one-on-one programme around developing their employability skills. A major part of this programme is a meet and greet with invited employers followed by a work placement which in turn will hopefully lead to employment.
The current Cert III in Aged Care (Campbell Page) continues to run smoothly with work placements fast approaching.
Workskills New Norfolk, in collaboration with STEPS, has secured full time employment for a couple of our indigenous clients in recent weeks which is just reward for these two job seekers for their dedication, commitment and want to secure employment
Seasonal employment is steadily on the move creating some casual positions for those who are looking to return to the work force.
Workskills are supporting the Daniel Morcombe Foundation’s Day for Daniel on Wednesday 25th October 2017 with a community fundraiser BBQ in High Street, New Norfolk between 10am and 2pm. Sausages and drinks will be on sale. Workskills Impact Communities Youth Entrepreneurial Service (YES) program coordinators and participants will be joining New Norfolk staff on the day. They will also provide information and a display/market of their goods.
We are also encouraging the community to walk to the memorial tree and plaque to honour Daniel and all missing persons and/or victims of homicide by tieing a red ribbon on the ptunarra Derwent Valley Child and family Centre fence behind the tree. Ribbon will be available at the BBQ.
The Daniel Morcombe Foundation raises awareness of child safety with their slogan “Keeping Kids Safe!” and has many available free resources for schools, parents and children to access on their website www.danielmorcombe.com.au.
Whilst it can be difficult to secure employment, and at times seems impossible, recent trends have shown us that if you persevere and are prepared to do the old hard yards, then things can turn around. Please remember we are here to help and whilst everyone’s circumstances are different we will endeavour to provide you with the best opportunities in your transition into employment.
