Workforce Australia - Career Transition Assistance

Are you over 45 years of age and seeking practical assistance? Workskil Australia is here to help! Through the Career Transition Assistance program, we’ll work with you to build your skills, confidence and help you get ready for work.

About Career Transition Assistance

Career Transition Assistance is a 3-8 week employment program that supports job seekers aged 45 years and over to build new skills and become more competitive in the local labour market.

With many Australian industries facing skills shortages, mature job seekers can take advantage of the available opportunities by learning new skills and applying their experience where it’s needed the most.

The program is delivered by a Workskil Australia Facilitator who provides career coaching to help you identify opportunities. The Facilitator can also help with navigating new technologies and understanding the online job application process.

Learn at your own pace with dedicated assistance.
