New Starters- Introduction to Australia’s Employment Services Sector
Tuesday 8 September 2020
Starts 2.00pm AEST (1:30pm in SA & NT and 12 noon in WA)
New Starters in the Employment Services Sector
The coaching program is designed to assist your new starters (regardless of which program) to quickly gain an understanding of our employment services sector, and to gain skills and knowledge to help them work with the big numbers of participants entering into the programs.
Over 3 webinar sessions, Damien Opolski will comprehensively introduce staff to the programs and components that make up today’s employment services industry. We’ll look at how employment services have evolved, and see what’s required to achieve results in a rapidly changing labour market. We’ll look at the role of Services Australia in assessing and referring job seekers to programs, and the role of providers in developing the Job/Participation Plans that underpin services and ensure job seekers can meet their mutual obligation requirements.
Regardless of which program you’re recruiting for, our New Starters- Introduction to Australia’s Employment Services Sector series will perfectly complement your own induction programs.
