belong is proud to deliver a range of community-based training programs each year, funded through the Queensland Government’s Skilling Queenslanders for Work initiative. To date, over 800 training places have been created, resulting in 414 employment outcomes and the awarding of 767 industry certificates to disadvantaged job seekers across the Southside of Brisbane and in nearby local government areas. In 2017, the work of our team was acknowledged with a Queensland Training Award (Metropolitan Region) in the Community Training Initiative category.
The belong training team delivers community-based programs tailored to the individual needs, aspirations and life-circumstances of participating people. Our training participants often overcome barriers to employment, including:
Long-term employment and associated issues
Recent migration status and associated challenges
Young and mature-aged learners
Welfare-related issues (e.g., homelessness)
We offer ongoing individual case management, advocacy and referral when needed.
Our training projects engage with numerous industry partners who provide many expertise and networks to prepare our participants for employment success.
Finding work can be challenging at the best of times, but there are certain things in life that can make it even harder. Training transforms lives! Our various programs help people build the skills, knowledge and confidence needed to kick start new careers. Keep an eye on our Facebook page where we regularly advertise new training opportunities as they become available.
