MRC 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 MRC’s employment programs.
The programs have intakes up to four times per year and to be considered for a place in a course you must register and attend a pre course interview. Numbers for each course are limited. Level 1 or 2 English is always an advantage to being considered for a place, particularly when accredited courses are being provided and assessed.
Most of the work readiness programs are of 13 week duration. During that time participants have the opportunity to engage in a mix of classroom and industry-based learning.
