Description

This report presents early findings about the impact of the Work and Learning Centres model, which aim to create learning and employment pathways for jobseekers by providing personalised support, implemented at five sites across Victoria.

Overview

Work and Learning Centres operated by community organisations with strong local networks aim to create learning and employment pathways for jobseekers by providing personalised support, non-vocational training, career guidance and direct links to vocational education and training and to employers. This report presents early findings about the impact of the WLC model implemented at five sites across Victoria (Carlton, Geelong, Moe, Ballarat and Shepparton). This research sought to gauge the efficacy of the model and to find what works for which clients and the elements that clients themselves identify as contributing to their outcomes.
