KI provides job readiness workshops for migrant women

Kaleidoscope Initiative is presenting a series of job readiness workshops developed especially for migrant women. These workshops are free to attend and designed to improve the employability skills of migrant women across Western Australia affected by COVID-19. The series of 12 workshops will be delivered in two streams.  The Essentials stream is for migrant women who have limited or no work experience and the Advanced stream is for women who have previously worked and are looking to transition to a new job or career or trying to reconnect to their career after a substantial break.

Participants will gain valuable experience in resume and cover letter writing and interview skills as well as a greater understanding of the Australian workplace culture.  The program provides skills to help with networking, searching for jobs on LinkedIn, career strategy and planning for wellness, family and work.  The program aims to help its participants become job ready, giving them a boost in confidence and the tools to assist them to find work.

Each workshop runs for five days, during school hours, to enable women with school age children to attend. To be eligible to participate, women will need to have a good level of work ready English (minimum level 3 certificate or equivalent) and be able to attend all five days of the program.

To find out more about the workshops, eligibility criteria and to apply head to the migrant women job readiness website.

This series is funded by Lotterywest and delivered in the City of Stirling and City of Canning locations.
