SEE program is a gateway to employment
CEA’s, Skills for Education and Employment program does not simply sit you in a class and take you back to school, we looks to develop your skills in many ways.
We use vocational units that help you to develop your reading, speaking, writing and number skills and also provide help in your life and potential job skills.
Students seeking skills for work have the option of training in health services, cleaning or hospitality and barista training at our Wynnum “Coffee Train” site. You can also progress to entry qualifications for Aged Care and community services.
We will assist students who attempt these courses with the LLN skills and can also extend training terms or the opportunity to redo the class while you build your competency and self-confidence.
The ability to communicate is vital in seeking and obtaining work. Lack of confidence can prevent you asking key questions, succeeding in interviews and earning the respect and help of your workmates.
If you come from a culturally and language diverse background these may be harder for you, if you are returning to work the use of ICT and social media may frighten you. Access to CEA trainers and teachers with real world experience can assist you.
In 2017, we have already issued over 500 Certificates and Statements of Attainment under SEE funding all of which are either in work related areas or are units that can be used as electives in courses.
Our students gain evidence of their ability to learn, their application to studies and their attendance through these Certificates.
Other than the Certificates issued by us we have also assisted students to access courses providing skills in computing and Business.
The CEA SEE program will also continue to link students to Year 10 courses, that will assist you to gain entry to the Australian Defence Forces, continue to year 12 or enter Australian Apprenticeships where Year 10 is a prerequisite.
