About the course

This course is run on behalf of a variety of Disability Service Providers and is delivered on campus or at your Disability Service Provider's location.  

Do you know what you want to do but need a little more help to get there?  Have you identified an Industry that you would like to learn more about or work in? Our Certificate II in Work Education will give you the skills you need to explore the job roles within your chosen industry, learn about work place safety and understand the behaviours that are required to get and keep a fantastic job!

We can help you work towards a future in either:

  • Business administration
  • Horticulture or plant propagation
  • Hospitality
  • Process manufacturing
  • Retail assistance
  • Retail floristry
  • Warehousing

You will learn about different jobs in your chosen Industry and identify the skills that you need for those jobs.  You will also gain an understanding of your own attributes and the employment support services that can help you when you need it.  You will be given opportunities for hands on experience as part of your Work Placement blocks so that you can practice your newly learned vocational skills and identify areas for future learning. 

Your friendly Teacher will be with you every step of the way to support you with any learning challenges and give you feedback on how you are going.  Delivery and assessment will be adjusted to encourage your success. 

Are you ready for Industry?  Is Industry ready for you?
