MEGT is proud to be working alongside Reclink Australia to offer employment opportunities to Queensland job seekers, and to invite local employers to Reclink’s upcoming open day to meet work ready potential new employees.

About Reclink

Reclink Australia is a national not-for-profit organisation whose mission is to provide and promote programs that increase social inclusion for disadvantaged Australians.

 

About the program

One of their current programs is the Pathways to Employment Project located at Caboolture Police-Citizens Youth Club (PCYC), Queensland. The program is funded and supported through the Queensland Government’s Skilling Queenslanders for Work initiative and offers participants of the program comprehensive pre-employment training.

 

The program has already engaged 40 trainees who are signed up with MEGT Apprenticeship Support Network and who have completed nationally recognised qualifications in either Certificate 1 Construction or Certificate 1 Conservation and Land Management. Participants have also completed Skills for Work and Vocational Pathways and Senior First Aid, as well as attaining OHS White Cards.  Participants have worked extremely hard to overcome challenges, learn a variety of new skills and graduate their traineeships.

 

These trainees are now work ready and eager to enter into ongoing full-time employment in a variety of related industries, including:

 

  • Process work
  • Horticulture
  • Land care
  • Hospitality
  • Childcare
  • Automotive
  • Plumbing
  • Electrical
  • Civil Construction
  • Butchery
  • Youth Work
  • Carpentry

 

Pathways to Employment Open Day

Reclink’s upcoming open day has been developed and planned by participants of the Pathways project to give them the opportunity to meet potential new employers and showcase their skills and project outcomes. All project graduates who are offered employment opportunities will receive ongoing support from Reclink staff to assist in their transition to your workforce.
