Work Ready Certificate
Mundaring Chamber of Commerce is partnering with Bendigo Bank Mundaring, the Shire of Mundaring, LYC Business Solutions and a range of local business owners, to deliver a series of training sessions to help our youth enter the workforce.
Currently the Perth Hills have one of the highest percentage of Youth unemployment in the country, which is a great concern for teenagers and their parents.
This 7-week program for 14-17 year olds, covers basic skills required for young people seeking employment and entering the workforce. Workshops will include topics such as:
– Obtaining a tax file number and completing forms
– Resume writing
– Interview skills
– Customer service
– Telephone etiquette (including use of mobile phones)
– Financial literacy
– Skills sessions
– Mock interview
Workshops will run every Tuesday, starting in term 2 – Tuesday 28 April – Tuesday 9 June inclusive, from 4pm-6pm at the Bendigo Room, Mundaring Arena, with the exception of the skills session which will be run from participating local businesses, to be advised nearer the date.
At the end of the program, each attendee will receive a participation certificate. All workshops must be attended to qualify for the certificate.
The registration fee for the Work Ready Certificate is $30 per participant. A light afternoon tea will be provided at the beginning of each session.
There are limited places available. Registration will open once course dates and presenter availability is confirmed. Kep an eye out on our website and Facebook events page for further information.
