Foundation Skills Pathway to Work
At the Wurrumiyanga Training Centre, Cecelia Holmes and Fred Tipiloura are working towards their Certificate II in Skills for Work and Vocational Pathways. This course is for people who need to develop general education, language and literacy skills to a level where they can get a job. It helps build confidence so that participants can talk and present to potential employers.
At the moment, trainer, Debra Marshall, is helping Cecelia and Fred build up their oral presentation skills and computer skills. When they have completed their presentation, they will present to a group of trainees plus one ‘ring in’ to make it a bit harder.
This course runs continually, which means that people can join at any time. Everyone progresses at their own speed, achieving units of competency, which add towards the final Certificate II in Skills for Work and Vocational Pathways.
