At MEGT, we know that formal training and sustainable employment can change lives and it’s our mission to make sure these opportunities are available to all Australians.
We also know it can be especially difficult for victims of domestic violence who may need to find work or change jobs quickly following separation from a violent partner.
That’s where our Empowering Career Options program comes in
Empowering Career Options is a program aimed at improving the skills, employment opportunities and social inclusion for victims of domestic violence.
Available in Brisbane and Adelaide, the program provides end-to-end support to eligible participants affected by domestic violence and will assist them in successfully gaining a nationally accredited qualification and entering sustainable employment.
