Finding a job can be a long and winding road, fraught with frustration.
This year we have been lucky enough to secure a second lot of funding to run the Massey Employment Gateway Programme. Organised by Enterprising Communities, Workers Educational Association (WEA), Waitakere Literacy, Massey Matters and other partners, the project is being funded by a grant from ACE Aotearoa. The Programme is also being supported by the Massey Community Trust, the Massey Community House, Massey Birdwood Settlers Association, Leataata O Tupulaga O Le Pasefika early childhood centre in Moire Road as well as some of our local Primary Schools.
Massey and NorWest residents can register their interest for an eight week “Get Employment Ready” Course and gain a work related certificate, a sharp CV, improved interview skills and support from a mentoring coach to become job ready.
Registrations can be made at Massey Community House on Tuesday 16th and Thursday 18th July between 9.30am and 11.20am.
Running alongside the 8 week programme there will also be a number of “Clinics”. They will be held at venues in the local community. These “Clinics” will provide opportunities for other members of our community to participate in sessions on CV Writing, Interview Preparedness, Online Job Search and Be Your Own Boss.
