Wirrpanda Foundation has united with Skill Hire Pty Ltd to deliver the VTEC program from our Skill Hire offices in Kalgoorlie and Bunbury.
VTEC connects Indigenous job seekers with guaranteed jobs and brings together the support services necessary to prepare job seekers for long term employment. VTEC providers prepare the jobseeker for a guaranteed job before the job starts and then provides the ‘wrap around’ support for the first 26 weeks of work, at no cost to the employer.
Our first launch in Kalgoorlie on Monday 28 May, was standing room only – A truly inspirational day.
Our second launch will be at our Bunbury branch on Friday 22 June.
The guarantee of a job before job-specific training starts is the key feature of VTECs.
- Vocational or job-specific training is directly related to available jobs
- Employers can recruit Indigenous job seekers with the right skills for specific jobs
- Job seekers are responsible for opting into available jobs
- The commitment of job seekers is rewarded with guaranteed employment.
VTECs operate with the support and involvement of local Indigenous communities and their leaders. VTECs are aligned to the values and needs of both Indigenous communities and employers.
