Free Education To Find New Jobs:

Posted By , .

Broadmeadows MP, Frank McGuire has announced free tertiary education courses to help workers made redundant to find new jobs.

La Trobe University will offer next month, 40 places in its Tertiary Enabling Program to workers from across the Hume region who have either recently been made or are soon to be made redundant.

The Tertiary Enabling Program (TEP) is free to participants and is delivered during 17 weeks from August 24 until December this year through face to face teaching involving two days of classes at the Hume Global Learning Centre in Broadmeadows.

Mr McGuire said the Tertiary Enabling Program will be tailored to meet local industry needs and equip workers with the skills to be successful in either seeking future long-term employment or to pursue further study at a TAFE or university.

La Trobe’s highly successful Tertiary Enabling Program (TEP) is offered as part of the Hume Multiversity Initiative at the Hume Global Learning Centre in Broadmeadows and delivered in partnership with Kangan Institute and Hume City Council.

“I encourage companies in the north who have recently announced redundancies to promote this opportunity to employees to help them find new jobs as soon as possible,” Mr McGuire said.

Anyone who wants to enrol or find out more details should contact Fiona Elgin – Senior Coordinator of the Tertiary Enabling Program at La Trobe University on: (02) 6024 9784 or email to [email protected].
