WORK

I want a job

On average we spend over 25% of our life working. Why not make working enjoyable and rewarding by doing something you love.

There are different pathways to getting a job like work experience, studying or work and study. The TtW program can help you determine which pathway works best for you.

It’s not always easy doing things alone; let the TtW team support you on your journey!

STUDY

I want to study

Studying is a great way to gain a qualification that together with your skills can assist in securing your dream job. There are different pathways to study depending on where you are in your journey. If returning to traditional education is not for you, then you may like to consider, studying at TAFE (or any other Registered Training Organisation), or University. If you are undecided on which pathway to take that is right for you, you could join our TtW program and participate in our workshops.

WORK&STUDY

I want to work & study

Working and studying is a great option if you need to build your skills and want to earn money at the same time. We can support you in gaining a casual job while you’re studying. That way you can gain basic work skills to support you in your future career. We can also assist you in securing a Traineeship or Apprenticeship which enables you to earn and learn at the same time. Work experience is another great way of learning more about what it’s like to work in a particular industry and we can help set this up for you.

*TESTIMONIALS

TtW Workshops

  • “I’m in Transition to Work (TtW) service with ETC and I see Dee who has been really nice and helpful. She put me through some workshops to build my resume and interview skills.”

    – Rainer (TtW Participant)

  • My main problem was I couldn’t make a decision. TtW helped me make a decision and secure a paid work trial at the QT hotel with its Head Chef. My family is so proud of me, I know I don’t have a permanent job yet – but I have 4 weeks paid work experience and I know if I do the right thing and stay positive there is an opportunity for me to be offered an apprenticeship. It feels so good to see my Mum proud. I use to spend 11 hours gaming and rush around and do chores before my Mum got home, but now the others will have to do them because I will be at work!

    On Track Workshop
  • I had no idea that some cover letters are scanned for key words and that sometimes a person never reads my entire cover letter or application. I used to feel so judged and rejected, after not hearing back about all the jobs I apply for. Now I know the trick to writing a great cover letter and all I need to put in it to get through to an interview. I don’t get as upset anymore if I miss out on an interview, I just try harder next time.

    Visualise Workshop
  • The workshops are the highlight of my week. They have helped build my confidence and I’ve been getting interviews for the jobs I apply for with the help of ETC doing up my resume and cover letter. I now know how to change it myself and feel confident looking for work

  • I love the workshops, I really enjoy the facilitator she is great and I have made good friends too. Everyone is super nice and I always feel great after attending

    TtW Workshops
  • I really enjoyed Discovery Day, we went to the Billabong Factory Outlet and took a tour through the shop. The people there gave me a lot of information and I now know I would love to work in retail, or do Visual Merchandising.
