Jobless women venturing forward
THIRTY long-term unemployed Ipswich women will earn a new qualification in community services or retail to improve their employment prospects through Work Venture’s Venturing Forward project.
Work Ventures managing director Alison McGrath said Venturing Forward was an exciting pathway to help women who want to return to the workforce but need to update or expand their skills.
“As well as the accredited training we will deliver a personal development program called Evolve, which will prepare people for the challenges of training, applying for and starting new jobs,” Ms McGrath said.
Member for Ipswich Rachel Nolan said the State Government committed $82,500 to fund the project
