NORTEC delivers the Skills for Education and Employment (SEE) program, funded by the Australian Government Department of Industry. This is a free program for eligible participants. NORTEC’s delivery of this program abides by and is regulated by, a Provider Code of Conduct.
SEE provides students with a Certificate II in Skills for Work and Vocational Pathways (FSK20113) and is designed for individuals who require further foundation skills and development to prepare for workforce entry or vocational training pathways. Working in collaboration with the SEE program, this training enhances employability skills and offers career path ‘tasters’ in a range of industry specific study areas, as well as helping to build LLN skills.
The Skills for Education and Employment Program offers:
- A pathway to employment or further vocational training;
- Assistance in reading, writing, numeracy, oral communication and learning skills (within the Australian Core Skills Framework);
- A vocational training and employment plan;
- Development in entry level digital literacy and employability skills;
- Flexibility in classroom access; and
- Individualised learning plans.
The SEE program can be a stepping stone towards further study and a qualification and is suitable also for those with a non-English Speaking background (not AMEP). The program offers initial, basic and advanced streams of training.
SEE is not like school. It provides:
- One-on-one tutoring;
- Working in small groups;
- A relaxed and friendly learning environment;
- Qualified, experienced tutors;
- The flexibility to work at your own pace; and
- A supportive learning environment.
- Be of working age (15-64);
- Be registered with Centrelink as a job seeker and, if over 20 years, be in receipt of a specified income support payment;
- Not already be enrolled in full time training; and
- Must be willing and able to commit a minimum of 10 hours per week to your learning.
Referrals to NORTEC come from Centrelink offices or Jobactive providers. Jobactive members are able to directly refer their clients to the Skills for Education and Employment program.
Assessments are made by NORTEC Training Solutions to determine eligibility and suitability for the program. The interview usually takes around two hours and during this time your current skills are discussed and you work with your teacher to plan a program that suits your learning needs. Following assessment, a time is arranged to commence training.
Training hours are planned with the participant, with a maximum period of 800 hours allocated over a maximum period of two years. Each trainee has an individual study plan with training orientated towards practical vocational skills.
