MRCN delivers work readiness programs and support to assist migrant jobseekers in securing sustainable employment outcomes. Many jobseekers have found secure employment after completing one of MRCN’s employment programs.
Most of the work readiness programs are of 15-week duration. During that time participants have the opportunity to engage in a mix of classroom and industry-based learning.
To be considered for a place in a course you are required to register an expression of interest and attend a pre course interview. Numbers for our courses are limited. Level II or III English is always an advantage to being considered for a place, particularly when accredited courses are being provided and assessed.
