Careers Pathways pilot for refugees – atWork Australia
The Career Pathways pilot is a new initiative to help newly-arrived humanitarian entrants to use their professional or trade skills and qualifications in Australia.
Newcomers who arrived in Australia under the Humanitarian Program, have lived here for five years or less and speak English well, can see a Career Pathway advisor to:
- Plan a career in Australia
- Find out how to use existing skills in the Australian workforce and how to get recognition of existing qualifications
- Find employment opportunities and training to improve existing skills or retrain in something new
- Achieve career goals.
