Wodonga Skills and Jobs Centre opens17/11/2015
Premier Daniel Andrews and Minister for Training and Skills Steve Herbert have today opened the Wodonga Skills and Jobs Centre.
Wodonga TAFE received $1 million to establish its new hub at TAFEspace, 158 Lawrence Street, Wodonga. It is the first Skills and Jobs Centre in Victoria to open its doors, and will be helping locals from today.
The Premier and Minister also announced Wodonga TAFE will receive $3.7 million from the Victorian Government to support the delivery of relevant training and to drive growth in apprenticeships and traineeships.
The funding will help Wodonga TAFE better meet the employment needs of the local community and industries by providing relevant skills to meet the needs of the changing economy.
The Wodonga Skills and Jobs Centre is one of a series established in conjunction with TAFEs across Victoria, supported through $15 million from the State Government.
The hub will be the first point-of-call for students looking to start training, workers needing to reskill, unemployed workers needing support for retraining and for employers.
The centres will help link jobseekers and employers to ensure they’re engaged in quality training that will lead to a job at the end of their course. Each centre will be tailored to meet the needs of the local community and industries, with coordinated, intensive support services.
